Today was the second race in the St. Albans series The Itty Bitty Kitty 2 Miler. It came right in the middle of the HM training; today was supposed to be my long run..11 miles but since today was a two mile race we just switched it up. Tomorrow I will do the long. Anyway, it was a cool fall morning nice day for a run/race. Nice crowd, familiar faces, Barbara (coach-ha!), my friend Tami, I knew two Gayle’s; it’s great how you get to know the running community after awhile. This was a 9 am start a decent time a little later than most; I noticed though when I started my left leg, the one that was injured, was really stiff when I started. I probably should have done just a little light jogging prior to the start. It took awhile for my leg to loosen up. It was a good flat course which made it easier for my leg. So I finished today 23:35:2 (official) my pace was 11:48! I have to tell ya I was pretty happy with it! My pace has improved and I timed myself earlier in the week I did 2 miles in 26 minutes; so I was freakin happy with this time!
The last race in this series is Thanksgiving Day a few weeks after the Marshall University Half-Marathon, so I should be good to go 🙂
Happy running and training!
