~ More ~ OR LESS.
This past Sunday, April 25, 2010 I ran the More Half Marathon in Central Park.
Official Finish Time:
I can’t say I am particularly proud of the time I finished this race. In fact, just the opposite. Sure, it was pouring the entire time, but I could have tried harder and I just didn’t. I took my time and tried to enjoy the camaraderie of all the other women running besides me. I tried. I sort of felt miserable the whole time. Wet and pruney and wanting to be home where it was warm and dry.
Funny, I never even looked at my splits. Looks like Mile 3 was my fastest at 10.26 and Mile 10 was my slowest at 14.10. All the other splits really don’t matter to me. I’ll chalk this one up to being poorly trained and not giving it my all. That is it.
So, as of now I have 5 races done in 2010 plus 1 volunteer credit.
I am going to work hard to PR at Brooklyn Half Marathon. I know I have it in me to run a respectable half. And if I don’t, well then I have to really re-access what it is I am actually doing out there. Should I just run for fun and not bother with these NYRR races?
To sum it up, it was a fun race with my homies and I did help a women cross the finish line running, so I feel really good about that. She hugged and thanked me. Big props to Vicky.
I will train my ass off for Brooklyn Half. Then…..well, I’ll see.
Appreciating what you already have, Michelle, is how to get more of what you don’t.
All your life you were only waiting for this moment to be free.
