New PR !!

I was so utterly stuck in a running rut! Until now =)
Decided to drag my lazy butt off the couch and end my Woe is Me pity trip of chronic pain. I laced up and hit the pavement at 10 pm.  Not a cloud in the sky, bright stars, slight breeze and 20 degrees. Perfect.
I just ran.
and ran.
and ran.
I decided to take along some words of encouragement  from fellow runners on my Facebook Page.
And WOW! I sure kicked that running rut's ASS! I completed my Lollipop 5K route for the first time!! Fantastic! I walked once for 30 seconds while crossing a busy road and then once more for 45 seconds at a traffic light. I ran the rest. Here are my results :

Distance                    Duration                     Avg Pace
3.18mi                37:01         11:38min/mi          

I would like to thank Anywhere 5K for their innovative website that encourages anyone,anywhere to get out and get active, any time! For free =) You can add your results onto their results page and see how you measure up from others around the world that ran on the same day as yourself. Fantastic!
