HEY YOU GUYS!!!! Today, I ran my 10k in 43:42 (7:02 pace) baby!!!! I placed first in my age group and was the 13th female overall!!! Let me tell y’all, the race was held on the Portsmouth Seawall Waterfront & there was a steady 15 mph headwind for most of the race!! Let’s just say, I’m thrilled with my time!! I’m sure with some added (specific) 10k training, my next 10k will be in the 42:30 range!!!
On a side note: There was some extra pressure put on me to perform well in my 10k today because last night, the President of the Colonial Road Runners asked me to be on their intraclub team challenge against the Tidewater Striders!! This competition is an age graded competition!! Needless to say, this created some unforeseen anxiety heading into the race, but I’m glad to report, I performed well!!
Have a great weekend everyone!!!! I’ll talk more about this race later!!! Time for birthday festivities!!!
