A few weeks ago I entered the lottery for Philadelphia’s Broad Street Run, a 10 mile point-to-point race that takes place in early May. And guess what? I made the cut!! Here’s the email I woke up to on Tuesday morning:
Broad Street is May 3rd, just 3 weeks after my first 10K on April 11th. The 10K will already be my longest race ever… it’s going to be an exciting spring!
In other news, my renewed focus on improving my 5K speed feels like it’s going really well. I did a strong 4.5 mile tempo run in a mini snowstorm at Ridley Creek on Saturday, finally returned to The Running Place for a chilly 5 mile group run on Monday and completed a speedy 400-800-1200-1200-800-400 ladder on the treadmill on Tuesday. Then Wednesday I ran 4 snow-covered miles at Okehocking Preserve and ended the night with this view. I love it here!
