1st 10k race finished today!!

Saturday, January 12, 2013

I finished my first ever 10k race today with my daughter Jen!!! Mile #5 was the toughest ever......why I'm not real sure but WOW. lol

I have a 15k race next month, and then in April is my 1/2 marathon (both will also be with Jen ~ I'm glad we can do this as a Mother-daughter duo)

BLC-21 is about to start, and I'm excited to get back into the swing of things. I've also joined a challenge at work. It's a stair climbing challenge, and they've also factored in a water challenge (which will help me stay on track for the BLC-21) You can never have too much back-up planning.

    Oh wow! I just read that you did a 10 k! Congrats! I admire runners a lot as I'm trying to become one. And the fact that you are running with your daughter is so nice. I'm trying to convince my mom to run with me too :)

    Good for you. I worked my way up to a 1/2 Marathon a few years ago. It was so thrilling accomplishment. I am sorry to say that I kind of went backwards after that and only did some 5 and 10k's. I really want to to get back at it myself.

    Thanks girls! I'm proud of myself. emoticon

I started with running with both daughters and a 5k race 2 years ago @ McGuires.....and have been running various races since. Last year both of my daughters had babies and weren't able to run with me but I kept going. Now that the babies are almost a year old, we're starting to step up the game. :) I'm so excited, and nervous for the Double-Bridge Run next month and the Gulf Coast 1/2 marathon in April. I've built my mileage up to 8miles...but have yet to hit 9 and need to hit the bridges for training...

Chug-a-lug. Choo choo. emoticon

Have a wonderful evening

    Have fun in the new BLC!

Running any race sounds like a terrific accomplishment to me - but a 10k or a half marathon sounds awesome! emoticon emoticon emoticon
