8 minutes, 13 seconds

The snow that came all this morning melted off during the day, and it turned out to be an absolutely BEAUTIFUL afternoon for GYRO.  The sun was out, and the temps were cold, but not freezing!

I'm so grateful Jess came out from Bburg to run with me.  We ran a solid 1.5 miles and walked another 1.5 to equal 3 miles overall.  It was so good for both of us to leave our schoolwork behind and soak up some sunshine and fresh air.

After Jess and I did our 3 miles I decided I wanted to run another mile on my own.  I've been curious for awhile now about how fast I could run a single mile if I really pushed it.  Today I got my answer.

I was so happy to see my time!!!!  I really thought I'd be closer to 9 minutes than 8.  Now I'm determined to get my time down to 8 minutes flat.  It felt so good to turn up the heat and sprint -- this is something I never do, and I think it'll be fun to do every now and then.  I'd love to work on speed over the summer and run a fast 5k... Anyways, Mathis says it's time for dinner so I gotta "run". :)
