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!
