Good morning and happy Friday!
I know. I know. The heat comes every year so I should expect it. So not the case. It catches me off guard every year. I was caught off guard during the Heights Half Marathon 2 weeks ago but not this time. This time I beat the heat!
My July 4th started with the Run For Liberty 5K. My goal? Find a pace that I could maintain in the heat and set a 5K PR. I wrote the time and pace I needed to beat on my hand (should have taken a pic before I sweated it off) and SUCCESS!
Thoughts on the race:
- Do I even need to mention how hot it was? The start time should have been earlier.
- I wore my Skirt Sports running skirt for the first time. After wearing skirts for several recent races and I have decided I prefer running in skirts.
- I met a running friend. I’m pretty sure this is the first race we have run together since the 2011 Chicago Marathon.
