Last weekend I ran my 5th 5k in exactly one year. Last year I ran the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in 29:06 and as you can see I shaved off just over 3 minutes to finish (thanks to Dave for running with me and pacing me) in 26:05.
I have a goal for 2009 to either run a 5k in under 26:00 (ugh! so close) or to run a race with a distance more than 5k. Since I got so close to the 5k goal I think it’s time to move on and try something longer. I found a good timed 10k in December that I think I’ll work toward. My goal will be to finish in under an hour.
