I dream of 30…

treadmill

Today I hit a milestone.  I ran my first sub 30:00 5k in 29:43… on the treadmill.

I know that treadmill running isn’t the same as outdoor running.  It’s pretty widely credited to be easier than outdoor running (and much less interesting).  I get that.  Still – damn that felt good.  Running sub 30:00 has been a goal of mine for a LONG time.  I feel like (with no real evidence to support this) it’s a significant milestone in the 5k distance.  I’ve done it – not outdoors, and not in a timed race, but I’ve done it.  Which means I can do it again!

15 days to go until the Santa Pur-suit.  Not really knowing what impact running in a Santa Suit has to one’s time, I think that’s my goal: to run it sub 30:00.  That would be a great end to a great 2013 season!

Happy Friday Everybody!!
