PR aka Personal Record

Ashley and I ran the Sailin' Shoes 5k downtown last weekend. Prior to the race, we ran for two week straight training hard for the race. Our goal was to run it in under 27 minutes. Preston said we were being too easy on our selves and said we could run it in under 26 minutes. We said okay, but secretly we both knew we would be happy with a time of 26:59. Well Preston was right! Ashley and I ran faster than we could ever imagine! We both have a new PR!!! I recently learned that PR is the cool hip lingo the running world uses when stating your best time.

8     Lori Hollis               27    Colo Springs     CO    0:24:59

We finished 7th and 8th out of 45 in our age group. Out of a total of 311 women we came in 30th and 31st.
Waiting for the race to start. Do you see me?
