Greater Texas Track Club Elite athlete Julia Pieper ran in the German 10KM Road Race Championships this past weekend in Bremen, Germany. For Julia this race is just a stop along the journey to her half marathon debut in October.
Julia’s report was that she went out in 19:00 for the first half of the race and came home in 19:05 for the second half. Considering that Julia has only been back to training for just over a month and this was a 38 second personal best…I believe that we are on the right track to a good showing in the half marathon in October.
Julia will recover a little and get back to work this week as she will be participating in a 25 hour relay style race…we are using this ‘race’ as her quality session on the week, as well as getting in a 22km long run mid-week!
Great job to Julia this morning on a big PR!
