I know I’m a 10 minute miler.
It’s what I tell myself.
In fact, it’s what I tell everyone.
It’s even how I predict race times.
Because I am a 10 minute miler.
I’ve run a 24:28 Parkrun, that’s under 8:10/mile.
I’ve run a 52:22 10k, that’s 8:44/mile
I’ve run a 1:51:53 half marathon, that’s 13.1 miles at 8:30/mile pace.
So maybe, just maybe, next time somebody asks how fast I run I’ll think before answering.
