Workout 201 - 10K!

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 :).
