Picking up the Pace

I'm still running 2.67 miles, but my pace has really improved.  Now I'm running at a 12.4 minute per mile pace.  It's a new record that I reached on wednesday, but I matched it again today.


It makes a huge difference bring water along with me. Now I set little goals along the way: "If I make it to the next corner I can have a drink," or "As soon as I pass that parked car, I can have a drink." Motivation and hydration all in one.


Now that I got my breathing and drinking under control, next I have to work on not getting so tired halfway through... Although it could be because of that hill that gets in my way...lol.
