So I ran my second 10k last week and decided I wanted to include my running with this blog because I don’t have a better place to put it 😉 And I wanna brag about my mighty conquests. Well, perhaps not complete conquest, but at least an attempt! So here’s the text message convo between my husband and I during the race, I thought it was kinda funny. I had actually taken a couple pictures along the way, but unfortunately my phone chewed the images up and won’t give them back for some reason.
Me: Start is delayed… too much traffic
E: Good Luck. Run fast.
Me: Thanks, 5k lining up now, I am shooting for 1 hr 40 min. Slower than last time so hopefully I don’t get so sore
E: I expect 1:30
Me: Mile 1.5 & legs already cramping
Me: Shorter to run home than finish right now (this was around mile 2.5)
I am SO not a fast runner! As you can see, I came in nearly last. But, as my excuse, I was in fact trying to go a bit slower because my foot has been bothering me for so long (plantar fasciitis) and I was super sore after the Grand Forks race. However, my time was only 27 seconds slower this time HA HA HA Next year a friend and I are hoping to do a triathalon together. I’m thinking I may need to learn how to swim first. Minor details, right?
And of course a self portrait, showing of my handknit headband (Mosaic Moon BFL yarn) that I wore. Because I gotta tie in my running & knitting.
