I love the swag this race came with. I got a cute new tank, a big fridge magnet and had the option of choosing a hat or arm sleeves. I decided to go with the arm sleeves. I figured they’d be a great layering option for the changing season. I didn’t even realize they had writing on them until I put them on! So cute! You may not be able to see it in this pic, but they say, “Go the extra mile.” They also have thumbholes. #winning.
I headed out on Saturday morning and decided that since the theme of this 10K was “Challenge Yourself” that I would challenge myself to run every mile (after my warm up mile, of course) under 9 minutes. I also decided to check out a new podcast called “How Was Your Week with Julie Klausner.”
I did my warm up mile and wasn’t getting into the podcast, so I switched over to music and kicked it into gear to hit my sub 9-minute pace. I loved all the beautiful fall foliage in the park!
So pretty! The views and the music must have done the trick, because I kept every mile between 8:20-8:45. Woot! Medal well deserved!
Also, don’t forget to check out the Fit Body Bakery GIVEAWAY! You could win a box of the delicious protein-packed baking mix of your choosing!
