Colorado Rockies Run for the Homeless

Yesterday, I ran the Colorado Rockies Run for the Homeless 5k.  Happy Mother's Day!
This is literally the third 5k I've done in my whole life and I had 2 goals - one of them slightly more ambitious than the other.  My thought was that if I accomplished both goals, I'd have a super duper happy day, and if I completed only one goal, it would still be a happy day =)
  • Goal #1:  Finish in less than 35 minutes

  • Goal #2:  Run at an 11 minute mile pace
Well, I got my official time via email yesterday, and here's how I did:
  • Congratulations #2585, NICOLE FELICE!
  • Here are your results for the 2012 Colorado Rockies Home Run for the Homeless:
  • Your final time is 00:34:30 at a 00:11:07 pace.
So, I was able to accomplish one of my goals, and I was only slightly off from both of them!  Overall, I was a happy camper, and spent the rest of yesterday napping =)

I have decided that I'm going to ACTUALLY run at least one 5k per month, in order to keep myself motivated.  Running without a goal is just no fun, so hopefully this keeps my rear in gear!

My next 5k is the Color Run on May 26th.  I'm excited! 
We also decided we're going to do the Warrior Dash in Copper Mountain in August, so I've got some fun stuff to look forward to! 

Now I just need to find a few runs to do in June and July, and I'll be all set =)

Happy Running to all!

  1. The color run! I actually just heard about that for the first time today! It sounds like a lot of fun although I was talking to a girl who just did it and she said to be sure to wear sunglass to keep the dust out of your eyes and to hold your breath through the color station otherwise you'll have a mouthful of cornstarch - yuck! Be sure to post pictures!! :)
