Yesterday, I did the Arbor Day 10K in Plano with a lovely coworker. She is about to run her 4th half-marathon this year and invited me to try the 10K yesterday. I was nervous because my ankles/feet had been hurting pretty badly all week and because the most I've run is 5 miles. It turns out, I had nothing to worry about. We went at a steady 13-min/mile pace (this pace included stopping to walk at each water station) and finished in 1:24:44. I began the race with my bloodsugar in the 300s and had to eat 12 Clif Shot Bloks to make it through, but otherwise, all was perfect. It was a beautiful day and a perfect long run.
Now I can check off another item on the fitness bucket list :).
