Ahh, at last all the training and miles we put in were finally put to the test:). On Saturday, September 28th, 2013 Erica Gutwein and I did our second Mini Marathon. We have been training for the past 3 months and it feels nice to know we don't HAVE to go out and run if we don't want to right now:). Although we both agree we want to keep up on our running.
We could not have asked for a better running weather day. Erica did an amazing job by increasing her speed to the finish line by a good 8 minutes compared to her first mini. Way to go. My goal this time around was to complete the mini in 2 hours or less. I practiced 3 weeks ago here at home and completed the 13.1 miles in 1 hour and 58 minutes so I was thinking it would be a breeze. Much to my disappointment I completed it in 2 hours and 1 minute. Man, that stinking ONE minute!! And the hills that this course had....I am just very use to FLAT ground!!!
