Welcome to another edition of Tuesday Topics! Apologies for not posting last Tuesday. I had some blog issues that morning and nothing would post. I didn’t have time to troubleshoot the issue so I decided not to post. I’m hopeful that everything is now fixed and that it won’t happen again!
This week’s topic – It’s BRAG time! Tell us about your running PRs!
Although I don’t currently run for PRs, obtaining a PR is always fun! I haven’t run a PR in many, many years but I can vividly remember how happy I was when I achieved PRs for different distances.
5K and Half Marathon PR
Can you believe that I earned my 5K and Half Marathon PRs during the same race weekend in 2014? How crazy is that! I earned my 5K PR at a local race, the Run for Waterside 5K. It poured during the whole race so I think I was probably running faster than usual just to get the run over with. After going home to shower, change clothes and re-fuel, I drove to Long Island for the Diva’s Half Marathon the next day. I vividly remember that the weather was perfect and that everything just clicked that day.
Funny enough, this PR is from my very first marathon – the 2016 New York City Marathon. I still don’t know how this is possible. I feel like I was super well trained for my other 3 marathons but never hit a PR. The closest was the 2018 Shamrock Marathon but even that was 15 minutes off my PR. Oh well, I guess it doesn’t have to make sense AND who wouldn’t want the NYC Marathon as their PR?! Does anyone else have their first marathon as their marathon PR?
