I’m Like… A Runner Now

  

I did it! I completed my first ever 10K!! I’m very proud of myself. I finished the 6.2 miles in an hour and 33 minutes. The first mile of the race I felt I was at a great pace and I felt good about how I was doing. But then right at a mile both my shins and calves cramped up and I couldn’t have run more if I wanted to. It sucked. I met up with my girlfriend Emily and we pushed each other the whole rest of the way. We’d walk then after a bit we’d run too. It was definitely a doable pace.
When I crossed the finish line I felt amazing. I had pushed myself and done something new and different and really pushed myself physically and mentally.
After doing my first race Im def open to doing more and keeping the training up.
