Twilighter and Mid-Summer Check in

Saturday night was the Rockville Twilighter Race, the target race for my 8K program.  Last year it was stormy and the race was not run.  The previous year it was brutally hot.  This year…perfect…cool and breezy.  It was such a lovely easy affair…2,000 runners…7 minutes from home…easy parking…warm up with my group.  Our wonderful coaches really helped me out at the end when I really wanted just to slow down.  I did really well for me… my pace was almost a minute faster than the best race pace I have ever had.  My daughter ran also…although quite a bit faster than me!
