I went into today's race not planning on doing a PR but deep down HOPING I would (don't we all?). And I did it! I was so pumped!!
For the first 9 miles I was pacing at a subpar pace, it was so crowded - that's what you get for anything Disney-related I guess. At mile 9 I just said to hell with it and ran my heart out. My HR actually was creeping up towards 180 a few times. But it worked! I beat my old time by about 6 minutes! I came in around 2:08.
Next goal - come in under 2:05. After that, come in under 2:00.
I'm on a runner's HIGH right now and had to share!
