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!). !
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!
