Tomorrow will be the fourth run of my current return to running. Coincidentally, tomorrow is the 9th anniversary of my first run. (Excluding the time when I lived in New York and signed up for the Chase corporate challenge and did almost no training and attempted to run 3 miles.. I had no idea what I was doing, I ran too fast, hated it, and immediately quit. So I count September 24, 2007 as my first run.) It was the “run” before I started the couch to 5k program. After that I ran a 5k. Then a 10k. Then decided to run every day (for 3 1/2 years). Ran some half marathons and eventually a marathon.
A Few Stats (because I love stats):
My first “run” was September 24, 2007. Distance: 1.6 miles Pace: 18:45
During the couch to 5k program, my pace seemed to bounce around 14:00 min miles
My first 5k was a Turkey Trot on November 27, 2007. Pace 11:10 (and I was ELATED with that pace)
My best 5k was June 7, 2009 with an 8:51 pace! (I was even more elated with that pace)
My current pace seems to be around 14:00 min miles. That totally means 8:51 is in my future, right? hahahahaha
