Runner's World 5K Recap - 10/20/12

After a lot of thought I have decided to move some of best of my old posts from Aging Runnah and A Runnah’s Story blogs, primarily the old reviews, maybe a few of the better posts and race reports that I have written over the years. I have a feeling that at some point, my WordPress.com blogs are simply going to go away and I want to still be able to go back and read some of the stuff I wrote.

If you are reading this blog post, that is why it is has been re-posted here.

The last 3 days are starting to catch up with me! Even so, I feel as though I am living in a dream world having got to meet so many people over that time.

I think that my video says it better than I ever could here tonight, I am just too tired to write very much today

Thank you everyone that I have met over the past few days and I will be doing a recap post next week after I have a chance to digest everything that has happened. but I wanted to give a big shout out to Golden Harper of Altra Running who took the time to do a thorough running analysis of my form and showed me how I was activating my hamstrings too much and gave me tips to stop it. That was something that I really appreciated and will help me run better.

It has been an amazing weekend so far and I can't believe that I have had the opportunity to participate in the Runner's World inaugural Half Marathon Event - All I can say is WOW!

Todays run was the 5K Runner's World Race and I was really nervous while driving there and just wanted the race to start, but I didn't feel as though I didn't want to go, I wanted to be at this race. Which is great progress for me.

During the race I did what I wanted, ran pretty conservative first mile and then picked it up the second mile and then faded a little the last mile, but I felt pretty good throughout. I didn't want to dig too deep into the well today and didn't do a hard push, because I knew that I had my half marathon race the next day.

Below is my daily RunLog
