To pick up where I left off last month, my legs felt pretty fresh once I jumped right back into things after running all the hills in Nashville. Go figure. On May 2nd, I ran the Texas Exes 10k, which was the race I PR'd in 48:24 and finally broke 50 minutes in last year.
I got there with plenty of time to spare for a super-easy warm-up run and stretch session and somehow knocked out splits from 7:49 to 7:38. But I'm terrible at math and was convinced I'd be over 49 minutes when I finished. Turns out I was closer than I thought and finished in 48:28, only missing a PR by 4 seconds. Gah! Next time, a harder kick to the finish...
|Obviously had to get a photo with the longhorn. Did you know one of the UT mascots' names is actually "Hook 'em?"|
|Cheers! They said since I'm freelancing, I can still crash the Team Chron pics, ha.|
|Hoping to plan a run + brunch with these guys soon!|
Until next month!
