2013 Scotland 10K - 37:40/6:04 & Queens College Track Invitational 18:36/5:59
2013 Scotland Run 10K
Net Time: 37:40 (PR)
Age Grade: 72.12%
3rd PR of the year and it happened again at the Scotland Run. I originally told myself to tempo it before the Boston Marathon. Truthfully, the fact that it was a club points race and the competitive adrenaline floating everywhere, I just couldn't do a race and not give it my 110%. When I clocked a 5:59 on the third mile, I knew it was going to be a good day and a PR is possible. I worked with 5 members from my team (lang, kasto, kate, aRuben and onishi) and was glad that I stuck with them as much as possible. The result was a 17 second PR and hopefully I'll use this confidence for the Boston Marathon next week. Post Scotland, hit the gym, met up with my dad then brunched with my team.

2013 Queens College Track Invitational
Net Time: 18:36
Less than 24 hours post Scotland, I decided to compete in the 5000 meters at the Queens College invitational. I knew this would be my last hard workout with tired legs before resting up for the Boston Marathon. I've never ran a track meet full of college locals and it seems like I was the oldest of the bunch. 12.5 loops with college kids and my parents spectating. Luckily my mom didn't do her tiger mom routine with all the yelling and screaming (j/k). Overall, I was pretty consistent with my 400 splits (88-91s) and because it was so windy, a PR will be accomplished at another time. With tired legs, I think I'll be ok with this result.
