Pioneer Day 10k

1:01:49

I did it!! This 10k was much harder than the last one that I did. I averaged 9:55 miles. Okay, not the fastest in the world.. and sometimes it's embarassing to tell people my mile avg, but whatever- I smoked everyone who didn't run it, right? Look at my race bib... #1!! See? I was #1 in something!!

The first 2 miles were uphill.. and not just up little rinky-dink hills... we were all pretty much running up to the "bench" on the mountain. Heh, each mile marker had some funny sayings. After they collected all the mile markers I was trying to see if I could get pictures, but I was only able to get mile marker 3. Mile 2 said "Yes, it's only mile 2". They made me laugh :-) I kept up with this one girl for a few miles and then i started to run ahead of her and I started to go a little too fast and then she smoked me at the end! Bummer... oh well... I did shave off about 3 minutes from my last race though and this race was a lot harder!


mile 3 marker. This one was my favorite :-)

the race started at 8am so it was getting a little warm. AFter the last h2o station i was dying!! It was probably in the high 80s once i finished. not ideal weather for a race- but okay anyways :)
