One Mile Challenge

Found this fun virtual Challenge over at Life Strides. The super-speedy Reid is trying to run a sub 5:00 mile. In a show of solidarity as many runners as possible will run their fastest (or not-so-fast) mile as well. It's embarrassing to say "fast" and sub 9:00 minute mile in the same sentence, but that's my reality. I'm usually about a 9:15 mile when I push it a bit, my PR is 8:43. I've been training for a half marathon and have been focusing on distance not speed, so this will be an interesting exercise for me and a good excuse to get some speed work into my runs. Good Luck to Reid - with all those runner vibes out there supporting him hopefully he'll break through!

By the way, I love "Ish." Great book.
