Suin Run Success

My goal for the year was to run the Sun Run. I chose not to join a clinic this year primarily because I couldn't maintain a regular enough pace to stay with a group. I had big plans to do it on my own which, as most people discover, is almost impossible to do well by yourself. My training had been going well until life got in the way. The good news is I am working full time - bad news for training. Despite the disruptions in my training, I was able to run about 1/3 of the race and happily took 17 minutes off last year's time finishing in 1:48. A new post stroke PB. Maybe next year I can run the whole race.
