Saturday I ran in the Somerset Turkey Trot 5K... I signed up to do this race since my friend Amanda was running this, and this was her first ever race, so I HAD to be there!! I had agreed from the get go that I would run the race with Amanda regardless of time.

Sunday I ran my 2nd race in 2 days, the NYRR Race to Deliver 4 Mile run in Central Park. Originally I was supposed to pace a friend of mine and was not planning on running at a race pace. However, my friend had business to take care of in Miami, so figured since I was running solo I may as well run my race and give it my all!! I felt good, my legs felt good, the weather was PERFECT, so why not?!?!?!

I ran pretty much the whole first 2.5 miles without any issues, ran thru Cat Hill, passed engineers gate and gave Mr. Fred Lebow a salute, and stopped briefly a couple times during the west side hills. I made up for lost time on the downhill. Came in strong at the finish!
Last time on this course I ran in 48:03... This time out, NEW PR, 45:32!!!
