shes way cool and loves the green bay packers and all things green, and running, and shes awesome.
and about that whole "she loves running" thing... shes also fast. lets take a look at her race PR's:
5k- 23:55 (7:42) Beresford Celebration
10k- (no official 10k race... really?) *update- 1st official 10k race is this saturday. potentially redeeming.
so now let us compare, shall we?
meet danielle (oh hi, thats me!):
im pretty cool too, and i love pink and beer and the red sox.... and oh yeah, running. so lets take a look at my PR's:
5k- 23:24 (7:32) Frozen 5k
10k- 47:50 (7:42) (beach to beacon 2009, no blog recap... since i had no blog then)
13.1- 1:51:23 (8:30) Maine Coast Half26.2- 4:15:25 (9:45) Sugarloaf Marathon
so why the introductions? well you see, jeri and i have been
@RTdanielle09 New challenge...? Whomever has the lowest cumulative time for best 5k/10k/HM/full for 2011 wins something sweet. Thoughts?
why yes, jeri, that sounds like a fabulous idea!
so far this year jeri has run a 5k (27:27) and a half marathon (1:50:57). (alright, alright... please note: this 5k was a fun run. she is much faster than this and will of course run another one which will bring her closer to beating me.... but will she really?) her 10k is this weekend, and she has a marathon coming up in may. so far this year i have run a 5k (24:48) and a half marathon (1:52:18). not to get competitive or anything, but so far im winning (by 1 minute and 18 seconds).
get how this works? we have until the end of the year to run any race of those four distances to try to be the fastest. i dont have an extensive race schedule planned out but i do know that i will CRUSH my marathon PR in october, hoping to go sub 4 hours. my current 10k PR is on the beach to beacon course from 2009 and im running that race again in august. jeri and i have always tried to go 22:xx in a 5k... can we do that this year?
so what are we betting? thats the fun part.... we havent decided yet, and we want YOUR input! online running store gift certificate? a surprise gift for the winner? give us your ideas and we'll pick the best one!
let the racing begin! (also see: "Challenge Accepted!")
