Last walk before the Race

Today I did do an easy 6 mile walk as part of my pre-race taper. For the next two days I'll sleep in and skip training.

Recently Running Chick posted her race goal for a May 15th race on Armed Forces day. I like the idea of making your goals public so I thought I would do the same.

I hope to complete the White Rock 'N' Roll 5 mile race in 51:00, a 10:12 pace. I would love to finish in 50:00 (10:00 pace), but I think 51:00 is more realistic. My PR for 5k is a 10:08, and I've been improving since then, so 10:12 for five miles seems like a good goal.

So there it is, it's out there. I'll be back Saturday to let you know how I did.

Distance: 6.12 miles
Time: 1:07:03
Pace: 10:57
