You should end all races with a smile on your face...

My previous PR was from 2003 so it's about time I improved on it! Now I want to run sub 23s or even 22s!! I'm actually enjoying these short distances. They are over so quick!

Big shout out to my friend Erin, who told me about this race. She lives around the corner and was going to run it but sprained her ankle. Instead she was my amazing race photographer. Thanks Erin!!!
Another shout out to Adrienne from Running in Hingham who helped me get this PR. We ran together most of the race and she told me that I would easily break 24 (which was the goal for today). She also encouraged me to sprint ahead at the finish which turned out to be pretty smart since I narrowly broke my PR by 3 seconds! Thanks AR!
Dave and I were originally supposed to run this race together but he took off like a crazy person running a 6:50 first mile. Now I'm all about going out fast in 5Ks, but that's a little too fast! Don't worry though, I almost caught up to him by the end : )
Overall, I really enjoyed this race and I'm starting to enjoy the 5K distance. I think I want to get a few more under my belt this summer!
Overall, it was such a fun race and I'm glad I got to spend it with some of my favorite runners.
Mile 1: 7:22
Mile 2: 7:47
Mile 3: 7:45
3.11 miles in 23:36 (7:35 pace- Garmin/7:37 pace official)
Oh and this was the first race I ran without any music and it wasn't so bad! I forgot my ipod at home and I thought it would be the end of the world, but I actually kind of enjoyed it.
I'll let Corey and Lauren recap their rockstar races but they did go 1 and 3 in the 19-29 age division : )
Do you like running races with friends? Every run 2 races in three days?
