Run as One 4m

April 19, 2009 at 9:26 pm 2 comments


I can’t say that I got a personal best like my last run, the Run for the Parks 4m but I am thrilled no matter what with my time. I ran at a 10:35 which after an 11:45 on my first mile makes me really happy!

This morning, after a bit of a late wake-up I wasn’t able to have my coffee but did manage to get in some water and half a banana. I hadn’t had the chance to get my race number so I needed to get to the bandshell and pick it up by 8:30.

I tried to run to the start which I did last time and my legs were just not being helpful. I am running the MORE Half-Marathon next weekend so Saturday I did my 10 miles and also played some tennis with my friend to celebrate New York’s Spring weather.

I finally got to the bandshell and now will for sure will never pick up my race number late again…it was a zoo but the bright side was that I got to pick up my awesome t-shirt. This race they had these great mesh t-shirts that I raced in because the weather was so nice and warm!

Once I got in my corral I thought I could motivate my little sore legs into running a good race. Turning on my ipod shuffle, however, I momentarily freaked out because I had forgotten to charge it. I would be running this race without music. I hardly can walk my dog without music. I knew, especially on the hills this was going to be hard.

The race started and I was a bit slow but started to get going. I freaked out about the music but then just started enjoying being out on a lovely Sunday morning. It honestly wasn’t the bad, I took in the noise of the run and for the first time got to hear people cheering each other on. I have not been converted into a no-music runner but I know that I can from now on!

After I realized that mile 1 I was running a little slow I got into more of a solid pace and really enjoyed the rest of the race. I sprinted the last few meters to the finish and really felt great to run a nice solid race even through being sore and tired. I love these races…this was the cherry on the sundae of my weekend!
