For some racing is about the your time. And trust me, for the 10+ years I’ve been running road races, that’s what I’ve focused on. Which is probably why, when I don’t PR or hit my goal or expectation, I’m met with a feeling of disappointment.
Sunday wasn’t like that. And I didn’t PR. Not even close. Dustin and I ran 1:54:17. I actually smoked that time when I ran a half 16 weeks pregnant. So for me (not speaking relative to other peoples’ pace), it wasn’t about time this weekend. Racing this weekend was about being mentally strong and enjoying the race!
