"Crack of Dawn 8K"

Monday, June 04, 2012

I finished my first 8K!!! It was at 6am up the Millcreek Canyon. I got to see the sun rise and hear the birds.

After running a half marathon, this 8k didn't seem nearly as long or as hard.

My body was trying to give up though, I got a side ache and my knee was tightening on me. I didn't give up though, I walked a bit and got going again.

It was mostly downhill, but it was still a challenge. I finished in 56:47 min/sec. which means I averaged an 11:30 min/sec mile. This is great for me.

Now, I want to do it again!
