My 10 mile PR is from the Chickamauga Battlefield 10 mile race in November 2007 (2008 was the last year that race was run – in ’09 they bumped it to a half marathon – very wise move). I ran 1:10:49. I remember how excited I was that day by the race!
Today, I ran 10 miles in 1:10:18!! Just me and the iPod. I wanted to push it – was hoping for around 1:12 (7:15 pace). So to run a 7 minute pace floored me! If I run that pace for the half marathon, it will put me around 1:32. I’m hoping with the nerves and race atmosphere that I will indeed be able to break 1:30.
