Well, I've mostly recovered from last Sunday's Ravenswood Run 5k and I'm proud to report that I've set a new personal record of 21 minutes and 27 seconds (6:55 per mile avg.). That time is well below my stated goal of 22 minutes but not quite at my secret goal of 21 minutes. I was pretty close though and I feel good about my effort.
This is, in fact, my first official PR ever seeing as I've never run two races of the same distance before. And it looks like it will be my only official PR this year because the next three races on the list are new distances for me as well. I guess that means I'll have to hold onto this one for a while.
