  • It's been a long time since I ran a race. I was extremely nervous. The race distance was fairly new to me. This would only be my third 8K since I began running in 2013.
  • The results were positive. I ran an overall average pace of 8:24. I earned a PR. I ran negative splits. I was the 10th female finisher.
  • Note to self - I need to practice my sprint at the finish. That was tough.

And first in your age division. Well done! A PR and a good race. Lots of positives here.
