Denver, Colorado
United States
Mile Hi Council Girl Scouts /
Total Time = 29m 5s
Overall Rank = 114/2125
Age Group = Female 50-59
Age Group Rank = 4/56
Pre-race routine:

I got out of bed ... IT'S RACE DAY ... showered because I like to start out fresh and clean ... ate my Muscle Milk n' Oats ... no coffee today. Headed down to the race early to do packet pick up.
Event warmup:

Walked around the park. The starting area was jammed but I squeezed my way in and did a few warm-up jumps.
  • 29m 5s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 09m 21s  min/mile

I've been working with my coach and she suggested I run the first mile at a moderate pace, pick it up on the second mile, and maintain or pick it up again at the 2.5 mark. I was digging deep just to maintain on that last mile ... 29:05 is a PR for me so I was a happy little runner today.
What would you do differently?:

I need to work on my pace and leave something in the tank for the last mile.
Post race
Warm down:

Drank lots of water and walked around the park ... didn't stretch ... bad bad Becky.

Event comments:

The Mile Hi Girl Scout Council sponsored this as a family health and fitness event. Girl Scouts is committed to helping girls grow strong in mind, body and spirit. It was wonderful to see these young ladies running with their Mom's and Dad's. The first place female, with a time of 19:46 (6:22 pace), was only 12 years old.

Seems a lot of PR's going on around here lately.  That is SOOOOOOOOOO cool!  Great job on your race.  That would have been great to see the young girls out with their parents.  Speedy little 12 year old too!  Yowza!

Great run, Becky! WOW ... the race winner was 12?!?! Incredible ... all I wanted to do when I was 12 was hang out at the barn around the horses. Any thoughts of running included me being ON a horse!!! Way to set a PR ... I'd love to have a time like that some day!
