Yesterday, I ran around the neighborhood to try out a new pair of shoes (Mizuno Wave Precision 13) and measure out a 5K for neighborhood runs. After all, everyone needs that 5K route that they run when they just want to run 3 miles.
I ran my “easy 5K” around the neighborhood in just over 25 minutes.
One year ago, that was my 5K race pace, on a good day (I ran a 25:22 in the Armed Forces 5K in Florence).
But I will work hard and break my own records- and be thankful for everyone who’s helped me break those records, along with those I’ve helped break their own PRs.
Maybe next year, the 23:07 I ran on Saturday will be an easy neighborhood 5k pace.
One can dream hard… and train hard.
Don’t give up ♥.
