Happy Monday! Anyone else excited about the short week and Thanksgiving coming up?! I had a busy and fun weekend, which is the best kind!
On Saturday morning, my friend Kim and I ran the Kilometers for the Kids 10k to raise money for the NC Children’s Hospital. It was freezing but we had so much fun! I didn’t have a time goal and wanted to just do it for fun since I’m still thinking about doing a half marathon on Thanksgiving.
I ran the 10k in 43:10 (6:57 avg. pace), which was the perfect “comfortably hard” speed for me. It was a pretty small race, so I placed 4th woman overall (2nd in my age group). I was psyched to not be sore or tired on Sunday morning this time, unlike my last half marathon when I was hobbling down the stairs the next day.
Kim and I spent the night before the race watching movies and eating lots of Ben & Jerry’s Salted Caramel Core.
It turned out to be good race fuel. Who would’ve thought? 😉
