I ran Chicago this weekend. My goal: 3:25. My actual race time: 3:23:39.
This is HUGE for me as I have been trying to hit 3:25 for 5 and a half YEARS to no avail. I’ve come close several times. But today I sealed the deal.
My mantra throughout? I am strong, I am in control, and I am seriously kicking @ss. Today is my day.
And it was.
I logged a 2 minute 33 second PR. Yes, I am counting seconds. Because I ran thousands of miles and worked hard for those 153 seconds. You can never give them back to me.
I learned a lot along the way too because I took a very different approach this time. More on that……
For now, many, many thanks to our readers and Salties that followed me. It was awesome to know you were with me during this milestone.
