I started running a couple months ago, and Lem convinced me to run CityTeam’s Run 4 Recovery 5k/10k with him, so I signed up! The 3-week Philippines trip kind of threw a wrench into my running schedule, and I hadn’t been running regularly ever since, but I did manage to get several practice runs in before the event.
I was only planning on running the 5k, but the way the route was constructed, we ran 5k out, then turned around and ran back to the starting point, so since I was going to have to turn around and come back anyway, I just ran it. So I ended up running the 10k in around and hour and 10 minutes–the longest I’ve ever run at one time. Here’s my run stats and map on MapMyRun.com.
Thanks Lem for getting me into the event. Lots of fun! Painful fun, but fun.
