I met Olympians!!!!!!!

This past Sunday, I ran the mini 10K in Central Park. It's a women only race and was absolutely fantastic. I felt really good throughout the race and I think that has to do with all the spin classes I've been taking. All the interval training really helped me kill it on the hills. I also met Catherine "the Great" Ndereba and Magdalena Lewy Boulet afterward and that was just freaking awesome. They were ridiculously nice and encouraging about my novice running.

I'm still deciding whether or not I'll run the Baltimore Marathon. Not sure if it's something I can commit to along with grad classes, but will make a decision by July before they raise the price of entrance.

running up Central Park West before getting into the park

my "rabbits" that I chased and made sure that they were always close until...

800 yards to go and I sprinted past them to the finish line. Woot!

Awesome :o)
