My First 10K – Short Story

Whew!  After a busy weekend I finally have a moment to share about my first 10K race.

It was AWESOME!  I finished in 1:10 and ran the entire distance.  Other than my hip being sore for most the day afterward I felt great.  My body felt like normal, like, “eh, just went for a run this morning, that’s biggie”.  LOL

My husband also ran the 10K, with horrible shin splits, and finished in 52:00 and my son came in 3rd place for the 1 mile.  Since my girls ended up going out of town for the weekend I had no one to capture photos of the event, but we did take a few at the car before and after.

Three friends of ours ran the race as well; and my two girlfriends came to run the last 0.2 mile with me.  I didn’t know they were going to do that and almost cried when I saw them yelling for me and then coming to join me.  My son ran the last few feet with me and my husband was there at the finish yelling for me.  He then embraced me as I cried tears of joy for about a minute.

It was a day I’ll never forget.  And I’m ready to do another one.  🙂

(after photo – We did it!)
Tomorrow I’ll post the “Long Story” a.k.a. my thoughts on the race, the day and why I enjoyed it so much.

    Congrats! I am so proud of you. So sorry I am been out of touch for so long – selling and buying houses and work stress take the zap out of my days. I can't wait to get back into my groove!
