Twilight Four Miler

Amanda and I ran the Twilight Four Miler together this year. It happens to take place about 5-6 weeks after the Mother's Day Four Miler, so it can be fun to try to work to drop time between those two events! It's also an evening race, so while it can be hot, it's fun to race at a different time of day.

I ran a long run of 8.6 miles the day before, so I wasn't sure how I would feel for the race. Amanda and I ran together for the first two miles, averaging right around a 8:50 pace, then she needed to slow down so I went ahead, descending to 8:30 and 7:54, according to my nike+ app. It was cool to build speed and negative split a race, since I usually positive split my races in a HUGE way! I finished in 33:52 and Amanda behind me at 37:27, not far off from our 36:50 on Mother's Day.
