best run yet

i only had to run 9 miles today. i know that sounds strange to hear me say "only 9" (i even think it's strange!) but when you have run 10 or 11 for the last 4 weeks, 9 seems not so bad! ha!

it was a GREAT run. felt good and i was fast. fast for me that is.

my average pace was 10:45

finished in 1:36:50.

all i can say is WOW. i wasn't even trying to be fast.

i'm so excited about that time! i usually don't focus on my time, only finishing the distance but i've noticed my mid-week runs getting a little bit faster each week. very exciting!

this was a GREAT run today!!!

Congrats Beth! Wow! That's a great pace for 9 miles! I know you're doing the half marathon in March...but are there any full marathons in your future? You've only been running for what, less than a year now?
