More like a form of torture! My friend Erin asked me at the end if I liked it and I answered quickly, "No!" I was miserable the whole time and quit discouraged as I watched all of the runners pass me. Thanks to my friends for the words of encouragement and a reminder that this was my first race. David gave me a few words of advice, "it is not a sprint it's a race, and you are only in competition with the clock." I felt slow enough to be a turtle. But wait, I thought slow and steady won the race? Hum.. Still waiting for the runners high...
Although, I was pleased with my finish time 29:18. I shaved off 6 minutes from my training time. Yes, I will do it again, in hopes it will become easier and a lot more fun. I am competitive so maybe that's where the fun will step in. My awesome fast friends finished within 22 and 23 minutes. Props to Erin who won the female overall!
Today the hubby and I took a mile fun run. I'm so proud of him! Soon he will be leaving me in the dust too! I have a lot of work to do. Who knows maybe he will race with me in the near future =)
