Victory 10k

 

 

Random pictures that my brother Tom took this month (on the North Shore).  Isn’t he talented? I love his photos!

I ran the Victory 10k this morning.  I’m calling it a PR at 45:39 (unofficial), which is about 7:20 pace.  Technically I got a faster time at the Spirit of the Lakes 10k in July, but that course measured WAY short, so I don’t feel right counting it.  Considering the conditions this morning (70 and sunny and humid), I feel satisfied with this race.  It’s about 25 seconds faster than my PR, which would have been this same race last year (46:02), but last year it was 20 degrees cooler and really ideal race conditions.  SO – I’m thinking this bodes well for a faster marathon time in Chicago this year.  I’m still undecided about what my marathon goal time will be.  Should have a better idea after the next 2 weeks of heavy training.

I can’t believe school is starting tomorrow and that BOTH my babies will now be in high school.  Crazy!

Happy Labor Day!
