This Sunday is the Veteran's Day 10K at Hain's Point in Washington, DC. I generally haven't considered running races to be really key races for myself this year, as I'm mainly training for triathlons. But this race is going to be an exception. I've been eyeing it for some time now.
My aim is to reduce my 10K PR by about 2 minutes. That's 2 minutes in 7 months. Granted, I've gotten a heck of a lot better since April of this year, what with track workouts, fast training partners, a triathlon coach, and a general renewed dedication to being the best I can be.
Going for a 34 minute 10K. My current PR is 36:12. I know I can do it, I just need to run smooth and smart. The nerves will be strong, but this time I'll conquer them and get it done.
