The goal has been in the back of my mind for a few days now, but I've not really mentioned it out loud to anyone until now.
In a little more than two weeks, Team Attila will be ready to rock and roll at the Nov. 19 Yadkin Go Far 5k. This event last year was the very first 5k I ever did, and I finished in a little over 47 minutes after walking the entire distance. This time around, I plan to fare a little better.
Here goes. I want to finish in 30 minutes or less. There. I said it. It's out there for everybody to see.
We did the 5k course on Saturday, and I made the distance in 32 minutes, 53 seconds. Then, last night, the ladies and I hit the track behind the Y and I did 2.7 miles in 24:40. Tack on another half mile, and at that pace, I maybe, maybe, maybe could reach my 30-minute goal.
Thirty minutes. Hills be danged. I'm going for it.
