Run As One 4M - 24:24 / 6:06

Net Time: 24:24 (PR)
Pace: 6:06
Rank: 87/6712
Age Grade: 69.2%

Ecstatic with this race result as this will be my last race before Boston. Hopefully this would give me more confidence in toeing the starting line @ Hopkinton. 8th PR of the year (counting repeats) and would like to continue riding this momentum. For the first time, I've done a 2 mile warm-up before a race. This is new territory for me since I'm always afraid of losing reserves and maybe I was wrong and over-cautious all along.

I felt really good out there as I clocked the first mile at 6:08. This rarely happens because I never feel great on the first mile and a half. When I hit 5:57 on the second mile I have to admit that I was apprehensive and questioning myself if I could hold onto the pace. Once I clocked 6:21-ish on the 3rd mile with the help of some hill (dag gummit!), I realized I still had some reserves in me to clock in another sub 6 mile at 5:56-5:57. Hence, for the first time, I was able to hit two sub 6s and achieved my highest age grade in a race. This was definitely a great race day for a great cause. Congrats to all out there.

Ro's going away
Partied hard before the race on Sunday. There's really no reason not to, as our closest friend, Roisin is moving down to Charlotte. A night of fun started at Three of Cups and continued at Arlo and Esme. Looks like we'll be making a trip to OBX very soon-
