I am proud to have set a PR (Personal Record) yesterday, Sept. 26, 2009 on the Salem Lake 10K Race! My goal time was 59:59, just wanted to do it under an hour so bad...well I did it - 59:37! So my pace averaged 9:36 per mile. Eric sweetly stood in the "cold" (60 degrees) and rain (yes, it rained the whole hour, but thankfully it was just 'spitting' on us), cheering me to the end! The trail is a gorgeous loop around Salem Lake (obvious based on the name, huh?) - the Lake is 7 miles around, so it's the perfect 10K (6.2 mi) setting.
My knee is a bit sore today, but I am happy to say it did not bother me at ALL during the race! Praise the Lord for answered prayer!
The rainy, drizzly day was the perfect afternoon to recover by snuggling on the couch with a few movies! I'd say it was the perfect Saturday! :)
*As you can see on the Race's logo - there were 30 K runners out there with us too...let me tell you, they were amazing and INTENSE to say the least! It inspired me to run faster!
