Well, I'm going to count this race as my official PR because I know that it is a full 3.1 mile course. This race has and probably will always be one of my favorites - each year I've PRed here and the atmosphere is just so happy and exciting. I ran my first mile in 6:48 which is my track mile PR (!!!!) I felt great so I kept going and going and going.
Around mile 2.5 my speedy start started to catch up with me and I got passed by a few people but I kept going. As I neared the finish line I heard my coach yell "ERIKA, YOU GOTTA GO NOW!!! UNDER 24!!!" I glanced up at the time and, sure enough, it was 23:49. My coach started counting down from 10. It was crazy. I was already sprinting, but then I pushed harder and probably had my best kick of all time. I finished in 24:00.5 so I JUST missed breaking 24, but I'm happy with my time regardless! AWESOME way to end the season!
