Day 15: February "Mile for a Like" Challenge--- RACE DAY!

For a runner, there's nothing better than a RACE DAY, am I right or am I right?! I awoke extra early this morning to head out to North Park for a Valentine's Day Race (15K... aka a little over 9 miles) today. I've actually never run a 15K before; for whatever reason, I jumped straight from 10K to half marathon. But, of course--- it's better late than never! I had a long run scheduled today anyway, so I figured I might as well get a race in too!

It was a chilly morning, but with the help of my cold weather gear, I stopped freezing my booty off once I started running. North Park is one of my favorite local parks--- the lake is absolutely beautiful, and it provided nice scenery for today's race. I wasn't pushing myself to break any personal records today, because I'm still focused on my overall goal of training for the Pittsburgh Marathon. Nonetheless, it felt great to get out there with other runners! Love the positive energy and the good vibes!

Day 15: 52-9=43!
