Race name / distance: PCTI Winter Series 5k Race #3

Location: Passaic County Technical Institute, Wayne, NJ

Date: 2/4

Goals: main goal: finish 1st in my AG again. Stretch goal: go sub-27. Only real goal: beat the obnoxious guy that I reeled in during the last mile of last weekend's race who realized a girl was passing him on the home stretch and decided to kick it in (almost elbowing me on a turn :meh:) just so that he wouldn't get beaten by a girl.  :roll:

Pass him early in the race!
Parent - By Beastie Girl [us] Date 2018-02-02 4:04 PM
Then I would be going out way too fast like he did... : pbbt:

Crushed all my goals! :cool:
Finished 1st in my AG again. (caveat: 2 other women in may AG placed in the top 3 OA, same with the other two races.)
Finished in 26:41. :cool:
Passed the obnoxious guy from last week before mile 2 and beat him by 56 seconds. :cool::evil: He even commented to me at the end that he couldn't hang with me this week. Heh.

Plus a bonus: moved up from 27th place in the first two races to 21st place in this race. One more race to go in the series on 2/18.

Kaiser Permanente 1/2 Marathon,  San Francisco.  Sunday.  My goal is to run 9:40 pace which would be about 5 minute fasters than my recent half times (and about 20 minutes slower than my best on this course).  I did 9:28 for a 15K recently so this should be doable provided I don't start like a bat out of hell (again downhill early miles) again.

Have a great race & don't go out too fast.
Parent - By foggydoggy [us] Date 2018-02-05 11:29 AM
Didn't hit my goal.  Didn't go out too fast but ran out of steam at 8 miles. and slowed down a lot.  I had a really long work week and I think I was just tired and I need more base.  I'll try again in April

They are mostly excuses to run longer than I would if I were doing a solo training run, as well as a reason to go south and see friends. :hug:
