On Sunday I’ll be running my first two races of 2015. I’m so excited to officially kick off my 2015 race season by running in one of my favorite places to run – downtown DC. I love running past the monuments and haven’t run downtown since the Army Ten Miler back in October.
The St. Patrick’s Day Double will start with a 5k at 8:15 a.m. followed by a 10k at 9:00 a.m. I plan on taking the 5k very easy, using 1 minute intervals switching between jogging and walking. The one and only reason I plan to take the 5k easy is because I’d like to push myself to PR the 10k race.
For the 10k, I have three goals:
Goal A – PR the race – my current 10k PR is 1:06:02 (10:38 pace)
Goal B – Finish the race in under 1:06:48 (10:45 pace)
Goal C – Finish the race in under 1:08:21 (11:00 pace)
QOTD: What was/is your first race of 2015?
