I'm leaning toward doing a 10K race in June. I looked for some other 10Ks and nothing seems really interesting. So I'm thinking maybe I do one long run/walk race, and then spend the summer working on my pace, and then do another 10K turkey trot. At least that's the thought today.
I did another 3.1 miles today, and I was tired, but I could have done more. I even sprinted in the end. So I'm thinking with another 3.5 weeks until the race, I can build up that distance. I know I won't be able to run the whole thing, but I can also envision me crossing that finish line ecstatic.
So, come June 3rd, I'm tackling my first 10K. I'm looking forward to accomplishing another step in my running career. Granted this wasn't how I expected to do it ... but I'm feeling good about this decision right now.
