I ran a 12K race and survived!
Sunday, April 11, 2010
Way back in high school many of my friends were on the cross country team. On a whim I thought I'd try one of their practice routes to see if this was something I'd like to do. Apparently we were on the "short" route which was probably 4-5 miles. Of course to my non-runner body this felt like the longest run on earth. Fortunately, the route went by my house and as we approached my residence I waved at my friends and told them this was my finish line. Needless to say I stuck with volleyball and softball and NEVER went back to running.
Well, never say never. Now almost 25 years later I ran over 7 miles at a 10:09 pace and actually had fun in the process. I'm working toward my goal of completing the Rock n' Roll 1/2 marathon on June, 26th.
