Race times

I ran my 6th (and presumably final) race of the year in DC yesterday.  In October, I was worried that I could not even finish a 5k.  Since then, I have continued to run further and run faster.  Here are my results over the last year.

Dead Man's Run 5k - October 6, 2012 -  35:23 (11:24/mile) - 35/35 in my gender/age division
DC AIDS Walk 5k - October 27, 2012 - 32:52 (10:35/mile)
St. Patrick's Day 8k - March 13, 2013 - 53:43 (10:49/mile) - 263/301 in my gender/age division
Cherry Blossom 10 miler - April 7, 2013 - 1:53:31 (11:21/mile) - 1351/1454 in my gender/age division
Capitol Hill 10k - May 19, 2013 - 1:03:12 (10:11/mile) 
Lawyers Have Heart 5k - June 8, 2013 - 28:50 - (9:17/mile) - 30/75 in my gender/age division

I have made pretty significant improvement over the last 8 months.  I've brought down my pace in the 5k by over 2 minutes a mile.  I really wanted to run the 5k yesterday in under 30 minutes and really surprised myself by besting that goal by over a minute.

As I move to Germany, I hope to keep running and would like to do a few races in Europe.  There is a 10 mile race from the Eiffel Tower to Versailles in late September, which would be awesome.  There are also a number of half marathons throughout Germany and Europe.  I'd really like to get a half marathon under my belt this year and possibly do a marathon next summer.
