My First 10K

Saturday, July 21, 2012

Yes, it has been a long time coming, but you can't rush me. LOL! Last week we (the Seaside Sparkers) did a practice 10K in Redondo Beach/Manhattan Beach/Hermosa Beach and I thought it was good. TisedaleK and I walked side by side and completed last week's 10K in 2 hours and 10 minutes. It was the perfect day for a walk but I must say it was tiring (I thought I was going to die!). ! emoticon

Today's walk was for such a good cause (homeless children), the venue was different (but beautiful) and it was HOT! ...but I pressed on. My thoughts were racing and wondering "Where and when do we turn around?" We even went up a hill and I actually did OK. I remember when I passed the two mile mark I asked the guy, "Is that all?" He smiled and said something nice and reassured me that I was doing it for a cause and two miles was still a good distance.

Today I finished my first 10K in 1:48:25. WooHoo!

For my sisters that completed their 10K too, here's the website to check your stats.

It was a good day!

    You are awesome! Like I said remember when you would say..."I don't do..." Well, you do!! We came back to cheer you on only to find you were better than fine. I'm so proud of you. Don't rule out that half marathon. LOL

It was hot but a beautiful day. This is definitely a repeatable event.
