I did my first 10K, and it was fun!
I mean, it wasn't all fun. It was particularly hard at the end. But it went great--better than I expected it to. I ran the whole way, and I averaged 10:55 a mile. (If you'd like to read more details from the race, check out my running blog.)
Ready for the cheesiest race picture ever?

Meeting this goal felt so amazing, and this is a day I'll always remember. I had no idea when I started running that it would be so immensely rewarding to me--not just the changes in my body, but the sense of accomplishment and well-being. It's incredible!
