Its finally Springtime in Albany!!! This morning was gorgeous! Perfect weather for the Delmar Dash! Heather, Chris and I went to Delmar this morning to run the 5.0 mile Race.
The Fuel: Van’s organic waffles with TJ’s peanut butter, maple syrup and granola. Yum!
The Course: 5.0 miles through residential Delmar.
The company: Heather and my boyfriend Chris!
Heather did amazing! The Delmar Dash was her longest race to date and she ROCKED IT! Go woman!
This is the 7th race Chris and I have ran together!
The Results: 5.0 miles in 43 minutes and 53 seconds!
An average pace of 8:41/mile for 5.0 whole miles!!! I was shocked with my finish time. I felt pretty good throughout the whole run–but there were times I felt like walking but forced myself to keep going! I’m glad I did.
