Training hasn't been going well. On a frigid February icy run, I strained by calf. Now knee deep in ice, compression, and physical therapy I'm trying to pick up the pieces of my training for the upcoming half marathon. This 10K was going to help.
This route was similar to Breathe Deep, itty bitty tiny hills and turns just to keep your heart pounding. I was racing, I didn't mean to, but when you're surrounded by fast people, you try to be fast.
Weather was perfect. I shed my jacket early. Lucky for me, I have become a pro at running with things tied all over me. This race was either a 5K or 10K. Passing the finish line for Round 2 was less than desirable, but at least I knew what was coming.
Courtney and I maintained a consistent pace. We took one walking break to hydrate, then walked one more hill. Considering we were much faster than we anticipated, we were OK with that.
The tech shirt was really cute and comfy. Somehow I managed to order a men's. I was bummed to have missed out on a v-neck tech tee, but the men's is working out just fine.
