I finished my first 10K in 1:04:07. I would have had to run it in 7 minutes less to have gotten a medal. I ran easily, but did not take any walking breaks other than at the water stations. If I do a HM, though, I definitely will do Galloway walk breaks.

It was only 35 degrees at the start, which is probably the second coldest day this year here in central Florida. I realize I had done absolutely NO training in cold weather. I usually run on the treadmill because there is child care for my granddaughter at my gym. When I ran outside, I'd wait for the weather to warm up on chilly days. If I'm going to race in cold weather, I need to train in cold weather! I didn't have the right clothes for the cold weather run either. I had read it would be a low of 43 and figured it would be at least 50 by 8am, but it wasn't. I had shorts and a short sleeve shirt. I ended up wearing a jacket, too, that wasn't meant for running.

Anyway, I finished and that is a success. I know I can do better in the future!

Good luck on the 10K! Just getting to the point that you feel you can do one is such an amazing accomplishment in itself! Relax and have fun with it.

Congratulations on your first 10K. The real achievement is doing the training and the real reward is the improved fitness you achieve. The race is just the icing on the cake. emoticon

I'm running my first 10K tomorrow. I believe I have trained well and am ready. I want to celebrate that accomplishment no matter what happens during the actual race. Can't believe how nervous I feel. Keep fingers crossed for me!!
