My first attempt to better my PR was last Thursday, at the 1st Merrell Summer Series 5K in Carmel. This was a fun race, starting and ending at the Monon Center and running along the trails and roads nearby. It was a very pretty course running along some waterways and by lots of wildflowers. Some of my Indiana friends thought it was hilly, but my North Carolina friends would say it had a couple of slight inclines.

I can't feel bad about that, though. I ran really hard, pushing myself more than I normally do, and I still felt good at the end. I really enjoyed the run, too. The weather was gorgeous, and it was warm but not hot, and it was fun to cheer my friends on and be cheered on by them in return. I am really looking forward to the next race, on August 28. Hopefully as the weather cools off I will be able to find a little more speed.
