Steamboat also has the option of the "hilliest 15K," but I chose to give speed a run. I really have no idea what to expect out of my legs. Over the past several years, I've become a pretty good endurance runner. I'm not necessarily fast, but I can hold a steady pace for some pretty long mileage. I have been a regular student of track intervals, which have sped up my long distance pace. However, I haven't raced a short distance since... last year's Steamboat! In 2011, I clocked a 35:55. It may be big of myself, but I'm just assuming I can beat that. So I'm setting my goal on sub-35 minutes. This should be interesting...
Are you racing this weekend?
Good Luck everyone!
After Steamboat, my race calendar quiets down for the summer. I have several fun races tossed in July and August, but my next big 'A' race is the Air Force Marathon on Sept. 15. I'm running as part of Team USO, which supports our military soldiers and families. Please donate here to my team and you'll earn entries into my weekly prize raffle. (One entry per dollar donated. Prize winner drawn every Monday night. Entries roll over each week.) This week's prize is a $35 gift card to Road I.D.
