First Race Of 2014

Today I ran the Super Sunday Race 10k – my first race of 2014. I know I said that Napa Valley Marathon was going to be my first race but I signed up for this last minute. I’ve been dying to run a race.

When I woke up this morning I wasn’t too excited for my race. I don’t know what that was all about, but even at the start I wasn’t too into it. After a few miles though I was feeling good and wanted to make this race my best 10k. Which was my original plan anyway.

I ran the first few miles with Stephanie,  a runner from the #9run6 group (she blogs too, check her out at http://www.girlytomboymusings.blogspot.com). Probably around mile 4 I was feeling good and picked up my speed, so I ran the rest of the race solo. But we got a picture at the end. Sweaty and feeling good! Represent #9run6!!

And I PR’d!! My best 10k time yet!

I ran this race in 2012 – my first 10k ever. The course was a bit different this year. It ended on the field which I thought was pretty cool. Spectators had to stay on the bleachers though so my photographer (boyfriend) didn’t get as good of pictures as he usually does but not too bad 🙂

I’m pretty happy with my race today. 6th in my age group (of 68) not bad!!

To reward myself I got some new running pants. Old Navy $27. This my second pair I’ve gotten at Old Navy. They last forever and they are SUPER comfy!

Just so everyone can enjoy what I enjoy when I come home…
