I can't type much because I have to take the kids to 4H but I wanted to share my accomplishment with my buddies in bloggerville. :) Thanks for all of your support along the way.
It was a nice run today except for the side pain. A couple of times I think I really hit my zone. The running became less labored and I hit a sort of Zen feeling. Hard to explain. I think I found the right pace and form a couple of times.
40 minutes (includes warm up and cool down) 3.05 miles for a 13.06 pace.
My fastest pace hit was 7.2 miles per hour. Woohoo!
I'm am a very Happy Texan right now.
