I wasn't sure how it was going to go but I really wanted to do it still, so I paid my money and figured worst case I would just walk. I had to really focus on not pushing myself too hard and not get down about having to take more walk breaks than I would prefer.
I ended up running the 7k (4.8 miles for this course) in 54:08. Which is only 2 minutes slower than last year (which was my first race ever and I was super new to running...)
Anyway, I am really proud of how well I did and I didn't even push hard. I took it easy the whole time and had an average pace of 11:15ish per mile!
I got a couple belly pics in my new race shirt after the race too These are the first belly pics I have done. Unfortunately a portion is just flab that was hanging about but I am definitely starting to grow!
