The one where we ran 6.2 miles

Sunday, November 3, 2013
Saturday morning I ran my first-ever 10K...6.2 miles. My sweet in-laws graciously agreed to keep P Friday night and Saturday so I could go to Birmingham for the race (Andrew was working). Friday evening I met up with Kristen to get our race packets and for some dinner at Little Donkey and some Steele City Pops for dessert. We both had the pumpkin Popsicle and it was delicious.

Saturday we got up early and ran the Vulcan 10K. We had to do one before December if we wanted to prove pace for the Princess half marathon in February. Kristen and my quoted pace was 12:30 and we finished the 10K with an avg pace of 12:27 so we did it! It was awesome to actually get to run in person with my running partner...usually our encouragement has to come via text message.

We ran most of it, with a few brisk walking breaks. The course wasn't too bad...just a couple hills in the middle. The weather was perfect, cool and sunny.

Emily and her running partner Paige ran t too. We are all running the princess half. Can't wait! But boy do we still have some training to do between now and then. But this girl who had never run a whole mile until a couple months ago has come a long way.
