80s 8K

Forgot to post about this one!  At the end of September many of us Pfelly lane runners ran the 80's 8K in Cedar Park.  It was my first time running this 4.97 mile race and I had no idea what to expect, I just knew it had hills (my most favorite thing in the entire world...not!).  Thankfully all my marathon training is paying off as I ran an excellent race!

Before.  DeLorean!!! 9/27/2015
It was 65 degrees, 78% humidity, 3 mph winds and partly cloudy at 7:30 am race time. It felt great out! At first I was going to treat it as a training run and keep to a 9:30 pace, but with all the adrenaline pumping and the fact that I felt great, I went ahead and raced it. There were a TON of hills, at minimum 3-4 really good hills and a couple other rolling. I managed to power through it all and even kick it up at the end. New PR baby!

chip time: 00:43:50.1
Avg pace - 8:50
