According to this article, the Around The Bay Road Race was 100 metres too long!
At the pace I was going, that’s an extra 30 seconds of running. Meaning, instead of being about 15 seconds slower than my Personal Best (PB), I may have been 15 seconds FASTER than my PB!!!!!!
Though it’s not official, and really changes nothing on the surface of things, in my heart, I feel I’ve just won a very signifcant victory.
All those days of running in -30C and colder. All those hills I ran. Each day my alarm went off at 5 a.m., far before daybreak. All the speed drills. The long runs. The perseverance. It’s all been worth it. I feel vindicated. I feel validated.
I feel A M A Z I N G ! ! !
