10K!!!


Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Yesterday was the Tufts 10K. 10K - what was I thinking???!!!

The day started out chilly but warmed up nicely. We got all dressed in our race gear, bibs and all and started out on the T (public transportation). It was fun to watch people's reactions when they noticed us and our garb.

We were doing this race with several people from work, as it was sponsored by our company. We also had a corporate tent, which was great. Had water and sandwiches after the race.

We checked in and hung around for a couple of hours before the race. Took a few photos.
Here's one of our group.




A nice surprise today was running into Sparkfriend Janet (JANEMAR2) while we were lining up for the start. What were the chances of that???

The race started and we were off! We started a light jog and then went to a walk and repeated!

This is me in the stride at somewhere between miles 4 and 5.


At the end, my feet were burning and my legs were aching but I crossed the finish line, hand in hand with hubby!! We did it!!

    Congrats on a great race! You look fantastic! My sister's roommate ran this race so my sister and her boyfriend were there cheering her on. Maybe she cheered you on, too! :)

    Congratulations!! I'm so glad you got to do something so fun and completely unrelated to caring for your mom.

Oddly enough, I keep thinking about trying a little Galloway walk/running my chemo is going so smoothly. Walk/running is a wonderful way to exercise.
