First Race Results! Tyler Azalea 10k!

Saturday, March 27, 2010

Here is a quick intro to my jogging history!

I started walking in September. I could rarely get to 5000 steps a day, then I got closer to 7000 and such, but almost never 10000, unless on the weekends!

I started Couch to 5k jogging program at Thanksgiving. That is a program designed to take you from walking to jogging a full 30 mins. I completed that program in mid January.

I picked this 10k race to run with only 8 weeks to train from 30 mins to 90 mins of jogging. I spent 2 weeks of that injured enough to not jog. And today is race day and I have yet to jog the full distance, but I have gotten up to 75 mins/5 miles without too much trouble, so I am hoping that aredaline can carry the last mile!!!!

If I can do this... it will be a victory we all can claim for Sensa and ourselves!!!!! See ya'll at the finish line!!!

That was me before the race!

After the race thoughts!

There were people walking in front of me that stayed in front of me the whole race. I did manage 1to jog it fully at my normal pace, which is all I was shooting for, but still a little annoying to be passed by some walkers...

Just checked Body Bugg... 20k in steps today and 3500 calories. Guess my pizza last night and my pancakes this morning and mexician food tonight shouldn't hurt me too bad next week! LOL! Shame on me I know... but such is life!

473 out of 494 =Total 10k
47 out of 48 for my age bracket- 35-39 ( but did beat the 48th person in my bracket by 20 mis) LOL!
Electronic Time=1:29:59.1
Gun Time= 1:30:26.0
Average Mile 14:31

I was only hoping for 15 min mile average and I got better than that! I am beat and ready for bed! I will include a few pictures to prove I was at least there! LOL!

As I got close to the finish line, I saw my family and finally gave into the crying that had nearly overtaken me numerous times during the race.

My darling angels with me after the race!

That is me almost exactly 1 yr ago. It was taken in early March 2009! 75 lbs behind me and whole new world ahead me!
