well, the running continues…
in my quest to a PR during the #wdwhalf in january, I also had to finish up my 12+ races in 12 months this month. as some of you may remember, earlier this year i made it a goal of mine to at least run one race during each month in 2016. and i can proudly say that i have achieved that accomplishment – with my final race being the reindeer run – 3 mile at sea world, presented by track shack.
and wow, what a race it was. i was extremely fortunate to run my final race of the year with my best friend (a.k.a. beast of a runner), and it allowed me to push myself just that little bit more than normal. averaging a 9:14 minute pace – this totally exceeds my goal pace for the half marathon coming up in january. a great realization for me that i can push myself even in those moments of doubt. and more than that, the course was absolutely incredible, weaving in and out of the park and seeing all of the beautiful christmas decorations. you couldn’t ask for anything more.
but, the training still continues on – check back for more training updates for #wdwhalf.
until next time
