My first 10K!

This morning I ran my first 10K, the Rattlesnake Master 10K in Urbana. The weather was gorgeous, sunny and cool (40's) with just a touch of wind. I ran the whole thing at a nice even pace and finished in 1:05:32.

Mile 1- 10:08
Mile 2- 10:13
Mile 3- 10:38
Mile 4- 10:31
Mile 5- 10:44
Mile 6.2- 13:18

That last 1.2 miles was a tough one for me, up a slight hill into the wind and then onto a wooded trail to finish out the race. But I kept on and I'm happy with my time!

30 Days of Thanks Day 7
I am thankful for the strength and an able body to be able to experience the physical activities I've discovered I really enjoy!


  1. Wow! 6 miles! I get really out of breath at 4

  2. Congratulations! And thanks for sharing with us on the Turtles Blog.

    I'm borrowing your BioFreeze comment for Monday's Thankful 30, with credit to you, of course. :-) It was perfect (and so true!!!).

    *hugs* from Orlando!

  3. Way to go!! I have my first 5k in a few weeks! :)
