I ran this morning and it was humbling.  I may have ran a half marathon last fall, but you wouldn’t know it by my performance today.  I completed approximately 1.9 miles in 16min 50sec.  It’s close to a 9 minute mile, according to mapmyrun.com it was 8:56min per mile.  That was encouraging since I expected a 12 minute mile going into the run.  It was so nice out, I couldn’t resist though.  

Keeping all of this in mind, while I might not get the time I want for the 5k coming up for St. Patrick’s day, I will be able to finish it =).  I’ve run most of the course before, and I’m only nervous for the hill near the state house, that will be a force to reckon with, but if I can do the hill on River Road and the one on Mineral Spring, it should be cake.  I just have to keep increasing my distance so the 3+ mile race is routine and I can work on my time a bit. 

In other news, I’ve passed my second derby assessment, with a caveat that I reassess my whips in two weeks.  I’m cool with that, but now I NEED my name.  I’ll put a poll up with the names I’ve put together so far… you be the judge, and put in your two cents.
