New 5K PR

I have been trying to run just about every day this summer. One of my goals was to lower my 5K PR. It has been standing at 24:00 for about three years. Well, I've had success this summer with slowly lowering my time through June, July, and August. Yesterday, I posted my best 5K PR yet. I ended up finishing it in 23:17.

Shattered 10K PR

It was a perfect morning for running. Clouds in the sky, gentle breeze, and 60-ish degrees. My previous 10K PR was set 11 days ago. It was 51:17. Today, I ran hard and was determined to get close to 50:00.

I ended up finishing with 49:04. It completely shattered my old PR. It felt so good when I was done. I was surprised to see that time on my watch. I knew I was running well and going to get a new PR, but I didn't think it would be that dramatic.

My son rode his bike with me. I wore my Batman pajama pants, Superman t-shirt, and Brooks Ghost 9 shoes.
