I did it! I set my new personal record (PR) at the Covered Bridges half marathon (Woodstock to Quechee, VT) yesterday. It was a drizzly day, but mostly clear and cool. The course was fast up and downhills – with some great music and spectators all along the course. My PR before was set on this course (1:36:02) in 1994 and after a 1:39:14 in Alton, NH 2 weeks ago – I set my goal and made it! Sub 7 min/miles until the end and I dogged the last 2, but still hit the mark.
My official results below –
117 4/138 F4044 1:33:22 7:08 1:33:37 Nancy Peck-Capozzoli 41 F 1822 Sunapee NH
4th in age
10th master (over 40 – we don’t get older, just FASTER)!
I walked the course back to cheer and run in my buddy Judy from Atlanta – so I got to see many familiar faces – it was good to go back to my old stomping grounds – especially being faster than ever!
I couldn’t be happier – looking forward to the next race.
Monday last week I ran a 5K and was 4th woman – with a 20:04 – this could be my summer for racing once again!
Have a great day!
