1st race of 2013

Today our local Moms Run This Town group met up at 8am at the end of the St. Marks Trail down in St. Marks, FL. It was a beautiful morning although a bit chilly, 37 to be exact! There were 6 of us for our first group run. We were running the Winter Runnerland Virtual Half.

The trail is very flat which is great preparation for the upcoming Zooma Florida Half in Amelia Island, FL in 2 weeks. We had a great time and several runners PR'ed today! I personally ran my best 10k time of 1:03. I'm very excited about that as I've been trying to break 1:10 for quite some time. I wish I'd kept up that pace the whole time but I finished within my normal 2:30 mark so I'm pleased.

Today was about being with new and "old" friends embarking on the biggest goal of the year. I feel great and can't wait for race #2 on 1/19!

Kickin' Asphalt one race a time!!
