{Monday Motivation} The Finish Line

I’ve been slacking a bit lately on my blogging but it’s because I’ve been very busy! I’ve been training a lot for the St. Luke’s Half Marathon in April as well as busy with work, redecorating my apartment (priorities!), and I went on a four day vacation with my mom and sister down to Charleston, South Carolina. But no worries, I’ll be back to blogging soon hopefully!

With that said, I managed to run a local 5K yesterday and set an 11-second PR- without trying whatsoever. I’m not trying to brag at all but I went into this race thinking, I’m just going to run it for fun. I’ve been training for my upcoming half marathons so I’m not in 5K shape but I really did surprise myself when I crossed the finish line and saw the shiny new  PR on my watch! If anything it gives me extra confidence for the half because honestly, training hasn’t felt so great lately. Happy running this week!

  1. Congrats! I love those unexpected PRs! I got one of those in December when I was training for Dopey Challenge. I surprised my mom and went to visit her for her 60th Birthday and she wanted to run a local 5k. We both ended up PR’ing and she won her age group. It was a happy birthday indeed. :)
