Pace: 9:17. I am happy with my time. I overdressed so I felt weighted down.

Observation: I always start out slow. This is most likely a mental habit more than a physical necessity.  By mile 3, I am typically lost in my thoughts and usually forget to pick up my pace. 

Take Away:

  • Figure out how to dress for the cold weather.
  • Be more cognizant of my mileage and pace.

Pace: 7:50  

  • 1 mile on the treadmill.


  • This was much harder than I had imagined. 
  • I don't like running on a treadmill.

Take Away:

  • Warm-up before I go all out. I put a lot of undue strain on some previous hamstring injuries. 
  • This was a good reminder to stretch after a run.

Pace: 10:08


  • Dressed more appropriately for the cold weather - less layers on my legs
  • Mile 8 and 12 are always a killer - mentally - whcih then affects me physically
  • The wind did not affect me mentally!


  • I can run when it is windy
  • I can push through my mentall roadblocks
