So today I ran what I would consider my first official 5K of the season in 20:40!  My goal for this year is to break into the teens for the 5k, that is a time that I haven’t run since I was in College.

Long-distance running is a weird sport, I’ve been training a little big harder in the last 18 months, and I’m almost as fast as I was 20 years ago.  

I believe my next race is on Mothers Day weekend, I am not sure if I will go under 20 minutes by then, but I am getting in striking distance.  

Looking for some new races on the East coast if anyone has any suggestions!

Since my return from Ireland for St. Patrick’s Day, I have officially started my summer diet!

For the first time in at least several years, I am working without a scale.   I am letting the mirror be my guide; If I still see some fat, then I need to lose more weight.  

Going to be running a 5K this weekend in Brooklyn, I have been running relatively hard so I should run a decent time.  Going to try to run under 21 minutes, but anything under 22 minutes is fine.  My goal for the end of the year is to break 20 minutes, so hopefully I can accomplish that by the end of the summer.

And the other big announcement is that I have moved from Brooklyn to the Rockaways, Queens!  I am living right on the beach, and enjoying it so far.  

P.S. I can’t wait for the summer!
