Jumping The Gun

I recently ran the CPC Run for Central Park 4 mile race on July 17th and loved every second of it.  It was a hot day and I wish it started earlier than 9am but even with those factors I did much better than I thought.  I secretly gave myself a goal of 43:00 minutes and was so surprised when I looked at my Garmin as I was approaching the finish line to see that I was under 40:00 minutes!

Here are my stats:

Mile 1 – 9:03

Mile 2 – 8:45

Mile 3 – 10:32 <—-necessary walking break in 95 degree heat

Mile 4 – 9:48

453 ft – 44 seconds

Total Garmin Distance: 4.09

Total Garmin Time: 38:53

I don’t have any weekends left to do any races in NY/NJ so I have been looking at London races which gets me REALLY excited.  I have found 3 races that I could participate in. I’m not sure if I’m jumping the gun, should plan that far ahead or even consider these before I move there.
