This is my 100th post– yeah!!!!!
I mulled and mulled over what to do for a 100th post but really, I just couldn’t come up with anything. I thought about a give-a-way, but nixed it…then I thought about a survey of some type and nixed that too.
So what to do, what to do…..
I figured it would just come to me.
And it did.
How appropriate that on this, the night of my 100th post, I GOT MY FIRST SUB-30 5K!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, that’s right folks…slow Jillian is a slightly faster Jillian as of right now. And you can probably see the glow on my face from your homes! Let me just say it again cause it feels so good- SUB-30 5K.
Seriously. I can hardly wrap my brain around it.
The sub-30 5k (did I mention I ran that tonight!?!??!?!) was one of my biggest goals for the year- my best time up until now for a 5k race was 32:40. I knew I would do better than that based on my training, but I still wasn’t sure of the coveted sub-30. As of this morning, and even a little before the race, my shin was still bothering me. I decided as long as I wasn’t in pain while running, I would push through- and if I had to walk I would. I knew after the first mile I really had a chance but because I did walk twice (for less than 30 seconds, but still) I didn’t know…I just kept pushing. Hard. And I got it. I FRIGGING RAN A SUB-30. Holy mother of running!!!
Oh…and I also want to mention that it was my best pace time for a race of any distance ever!
Tonight was a good night. Tonight I love running. LOVE, LOVE and more LOVE. Tonight is why I run.
So yeah…no survey or give-a-way for the grand 100th post…but uh, I got a sub-30 5K!
Race report tomorrow. 🙂
