Well I did the Mini and I am happy I was under 3 hours, however, I didn't get my goal time. I missed it by 7 minutes. My finishing time and PR is 2:55:26. So the good thing is with practice I should be able to beat this.
I am all signed up for the Chicago Marathon on 10,10,10. So lots of training to do in the next 5 months! I even went for a 2.6 miler today. It actually felt good suprisingly. I thought my muscles would still ache but I did 11:40 miles. Not bad for me.
