Race Times

I started running in June 2012 and ran my first race in February 2013. I’m not the world’s fastest runner, but I train hard and have been steadily improving my distance and paces! Here’s what I’ve accomplished so far!

5K: 

Since I ran my first 5K in Feb 2013 I’ve decreased my overall race time by 8 minutes and 53 seconds and I have decreased my average pace by 3 minutes and 23 seconds! (I’ve yet to race a 5K in 2015).

My first 5K was run at a 15:34 minute per mile pace and my most recent 5K was finished at an average 12:12 minute per mile pace!

Half Marathon:

Since I ran my first half marathon in Nov 2013 I’ve decreased my overall race time by 38 minutes and decreased my average pace by 2 minutes 43 seconds!

My first half marathon was run at 16:13 minute per mile pace and my most recent half was finished at an average 13:30 minute per mile pace!

Marathon:

I’ve only run one full marathon so far and the day was full of trials (as I’m sure everyone’s first marathon is). I’m looking forward to running a quality second marathon this fall in Chicago!
