So this seems to be the month of setting PR’s in running. Yesterday I had the privilege of leading a run for my sons soccer (football) team. We ended up doing 5.75 miles with quite a bit of elevation. Out of around 15 boys, only 3 had ever run any sort of distance before. I ended up averaging an 8:42/mile pace and I’d say the range for all of the boys was between 8:30/mile to 9:00/mile. Considering there was a lot of elevation gain and the fact most of the boys aren’t accustomed to running that kind of distance….they did AWESOME! Here are my stats from that run.
