Racer’s regret

vs_sun_run_07_top_041607_375.jpg

As I ran up the final hill at 9k if I’d just given a little extra push, I would probably have achieved my goal of a 10k PB. Instead, I missed it by about 12 10 seconds, crossing the line in 37:48 (my watch) 37:46 (official)… although, that is my best in four years !

Today: 10k Race, 37:48 (Garmin: 6.3mi, av. 6:00/mi), 2.5miwu, 2.5micd

    i think if you had a good variety of 80’s tunes on your iPod, it may have helped the cause. seeing that I have absolutely no other authority on giving advice to you about running, this is going to have to be it. perhaps next time some Wang Chung?

    Drat! So close. But still, congrats on a strong performance.

    BTW – the playlist is great… did it help?

    Good suggestion Angie… Wang Chung will be a great accompaniment to a sunny spring run… luckily I have their greatest hit CD !

    And Josh… thanks very much, I really wanted a PB — they are so much harder to come by as the years go by but the tunes were great !! It was kind of cool because I distinctly remember as each new song began but then I must have been too focussed on keeping the feet moving to have really paid attention… but I think I would have missed not having them, if that makes sense.
