My Indoor Marathon Record was broken a week ago.
The new record is 2:53:53. I ran a 2:57:34 last year.
When I first signed up for Zoom! Yah! Yah! last year, I did it because I thought it would be entertaining. Humorous, even. “I’m a world record holder…” I would say with a chuckle.
But after reading that my record had been broken, I realized that I cared! It’s now something that I was proud to have held, and now want to defend! It may be something I train for specifically next year :). Zoom! Yah! Yah! 2015, here I come.
Nerdy, yes, but I’m motivated 🙂
