It's the day before my 10K! I'm way nervous but excited! I have not ran at all since Monday evening when I did my second 6.2 miles. I wanted to give my body a chance to really be rested for this 10K. So far, I have mainly been focusing on stretching and working out other muscles besides my legs the other days this week.
I headed to the YMCA to get my packet on Friday night. Usually I would do this the morning of, but I took a half day off or a doctor's appointment and got bored when that was finished so I figured why not get it out of the way!
Surprisingly, on my way to the doctor, I was in a car accident! Some guy rear ended me. Not too much damage to my car, but enough to make me pretty sore afterwards. It definitely shook me up a bit. Wonderful... just before my race!
Let's see how can I sum up the day of the race. I know... disorganized! LOL! First off the race started 20 minutes late. Then the people directing the course told us the wrong way!!! The last mile marker I even saw was 3! YIKES! Besides all the not knowing where the heck I was suppose to be going stuff, I feel happy with how things went. I finished in 1 hour and 5 minutes... and that was with hills. Yes, the course was very hilly especially for me! But I didn't stop running the whole time and that was my main goal!
Here's Greg (my running buddy) and I before the race... the 10 fingers stands for 10K not 10 miles :)
Getting ready to go!!!
Here's a pic of the balloon release! The race was in memory of children who had passed from still births. This was kind of emotional.
All in all it was a good race for me... disorganized yes... but I still felt good once I was finished.
Now... to train for my HALF MARATHON in October!
