Race Recap!

racerecap

So my first ever collegiate race was Saturday.

It was a 4k, not a 5k.

I felt really good the first mile and hit pace at the mile that coach wanted. (6:45 and I hit it at 6:43)

After that I felt like I just straight ate it, but I actually didn’t. I maintained a 6:45 pace for the whole race.

My finish time was 17:20, which is 6:58 pace or so, however the course was long.

So if you want to get technical my 4k time was more around 16:50 or a bit under.

But since it’s a 4k and not a 5k anyway, it doesn’t matter.

I ran a pretty good race in my opinion. Kept a consistent pace and passed girls.

At the mile marker I was 48th I believe and at the finish I was 33rd. Apparently this was out of 147ish girls.

So overall I had a good race and can’t wait to actually run a 5k to see what my time will be!

It’s possible I could be sub 21 minutes which is a HUGE PR for me considering my 5k time is 22:33.

How exciting?!

Here are some photos of me during the race. Not so pretty haha. The spandex definitely will not be worn again because they rode up insanely! I’m pretty sure the whole park saw my butt.
