I ran my first 10K today. I was more than nervous. In fact, I was so nervous that I almost backed out. But, I knew I could do it. I was just afraid that I would be disappointed in myself. But in the end, I’m proud of myself.

The weather was nice - not too hot or humid and not too cold. I couldn’t complain. The route was flat, which was helpful. The route along the river, as usual, was beautiful.

Pacing is difficult for me. Not knowing how far I had gone or how much farther I had to go was difficult and distracting. We had water stops, but we didn’t have any one calling out times or mileage. But overall, I did ok.

I wanted to finish in an hour. I didn’t reach that goal, but I came close. I came in at 1:02:28. A 10:04 pace. I’m pleased with myself. It was tough, but I did my best. And for that, I am proud of myself.
