Great morning at the Bolder Boulder 10K. The shoes were lined up and ready to roll as we left the house at 6am:
The kids (+ Kathy) were in the backseat.
I hit the shitter and just made it to my wave in time to start running. I like to live on the edge.
I will say I am not in 10K shape. Sure I just ran a marathon a month ago, but I will say that I haven’t done speed in SO long. This race was hard for me. I was tired the whole time. By the end I wanted to puke up my bagel. But I told myself I would break 50 minutes and I did while almost retching. 49:29 (7:58 avg).
I know I have a faster 10k in me, but not right now.
Ken pushed the hell out of Sam, 13, and got him a new PR of 53:03.
Emma, 10, ran with my friend Kathy who was doing her first 10K. They rocked it out at 1:14. I am so proud of Kathy who literally started running ten months ago. She never thought she could do something like this!
It was great running weather but the minute I stopped running I started freezing, so we didn’t stick around for long. I get mean and ornery when I am cold.
I am just glad to be RACING again. This was my first race since August of last year before I got injured. Hallelujah! For all you injured souls out there, it DOES get better!
Just because you wear a hula outfit does not mean you are warm:
Got to go. I must be boring someone anonymous.
Happy Memorial Day. Go eat some BBQ.
