30 Minute Run PR
I hit another milestone PR that I was running for this summer. I was gunning for the elusive (to me anyway) 4 miles in 30 minutes or less. I had flirted with it a few times this summer with separate attempts of 3.85 miles and 3.92 miles in 30 minutes. But finally, with my son Bishop riding bike behind me, I ran 4.03 miles in 30 minutes, averaging 7:28/mile. Out of all my PRs this year, I really think this was the hardest one. For me, it is basically a continuous 30 minute sprint. It took a lot of mental determination to keep going during the uncomfortable times and stay focused during the lulls.
