The Great Race!

Well early this morning I ran my first 10k and actually completed it! It was right here in the neighborhood and was the Great Race of Agoura. Apparently it has been voted one of the top 6 best 10ks in the nation. It was set back around the neighborhood but the majority was spent back in the horse farm area of Agoura just alongside the mountains. So it was a very lovely and peaceful run.

For those of you who are wondering, my official time was 1 hour 13 minutes and 8 seconds. Didn't do that great in the overall picture but I'm pretty happy with myself considering it was my first time and I hadn't run in over a month.

I was a little scared going into it knowing I had never run that long of a distance before but wanted to see what I could do. Turns out it wasn't as hard as I thought it would have been and now I can't wait to do another one. Just need to let the knee heal some before I tear it up again.

I just found your blog through Rogge's and wanted to congratulate you on your first 10K. That's about it.

Kudos Kristine on a job done. Seriously, good job. I was proud of myself for buying rollerblades to attempt to exercise. Sadly, I've used them once.
