Well hello there, loyal readers (hi mom!). I wanted to post this immediately after the GW Parkway Classic, but instead went home, took a shower, ate something, and took a long nap. The rest of the week then got away from me. So here I am blogging and doing laundry on a Friday night. I’m a total party animal if you couldn’t tell.
On Saturday, I ran the Sole of the City 10k through the streets of downtown Baltimore, and it was awesome! As you may have seen in my last post, I went into the race with the idea that I didn’t want to overdo this race, because I have some longer races in the next few weeks. Surprisingly, it went pretty well.
Maybe it’s because I’m a natural sprinter or because I’m hyper-competitive, but I’m terrible at pacing my training runs. I have gotten slightly better this training cycle, but apparently I still live (and die) by Steve Prefontaine’s motto “The best pace is a suicide pace, and today looks like a good day to die”.
I’ve been toying with the idea of creating a blog, specifically a running/fitness related blog, for some time. I would get all kinds of ideas in my head, and then never actually create the blog. I figured there was no way I could have enough interesting things to say and there were plenty of running blogs out there, so why would anyone read mine. Both of these things remain to be seen.
