The Human Race

Over the weekend, I decided that I needed to do a timed race in preparation for my upcoming 1/2 marathon.  The weather was supposed to be beautiful on Saturday and I found a race that was close to my heart.  

I ran in The Human Race 5K, benefitting Life Choices of Memphis.  LC is an organization committed to providing a non-judgemental and Christ-like environment geared towards educating and empowering women to make life-affiriming decisions such as adoption.  Since November is National Adoption Month and we're adopting, I definitely wanted to show my support.  
I am happy to report that I finished the 5K in 25:56.  That's just 22 seconds shy of my PR.  

Official Stats
Race Time:  25:56
Average Pace:  8:21
Division Rank:  5
Gender Rank:  7

After the race, I came home and ran another 2 miles.  That, ladies and gents, is how you know you're seriously training to run a 1/2 marathon.

You are awesome!! I'm so impressed with your times. I'm a super slow runner so I'll probably never have a 5k under 29 minutes! I'm running my first half this weekend. Unlike you, I have been a real slacker in my training so I'm not sure how well it will go! Eeek!
