Even though, as I heard my alarm clock go off at 7:30m on Christmas Eve and wondered...WHY!?...
I got up and got my running clothes on and managed to be at Marathon Park by 8am for Amy & Amylee's Virtual 5k.
Martinho, Heather and Amy ran it together so it wasn't so much a virtual for us, although it's a lot harder to race when there's not really anyone to "race" against.
Well technically I could pretend to be racing Amy since she was in front of me but since she's almost always nearly a quarter of a mile ahead it doesn't really feel like I've got a chance:) Martinho could have run faster but he stuck with me since he knew I didn't have my Garmin.
I had planned on using my Garmin so I had made sure to plan ahead and charge it the night before. Somehow it turned on during the night and the battery was DEAD in the morning.
But I managed to pull in a 22:17 which isn't a PR and really not that great when you think that I did 22:19 on a much hillier course last week. OR it's great because I managed to do it after racing last week:)
Regardless of my time I had a blast and think it was a fantastic idea and want to do more of them!
Now I just need to plan out my race calendar for 2012...no pressure:)
