With Komen 5K, my 2011 running goal is almost complete

Vincent Tafuro after the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5K in St Petersburg

Yesterday I completed the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5K in downtown St Petersburg, my third of four planned competitive 5K’s for 2011. My final 2011 race will be Richard’s Run for Life on 11/4/2011 in Ybor City.

I want to thank my mother Donna, uncle Phil and friends Doreen Connolly and Maggie Osborn for their donations.

My official time for the race was 32:19 which was slower then the previous two races. I am hoping that cooler weather and steady training runs will improve my Ybor time and bring it below 30 minutes.

A secondary goal of reaching 200 running miles for the calendar year has now crept onto my radar and will require I run an average of 5 miles weekly for the next 13 weeks.
