10K + 2MILES + 5K = FUN

Jessica and I did the Phoenix 10K!  Whoop! Whoop!  I also ran the 5K race... and 2 miles in-between!  The whole reason for running the 10K, 5K and 2 miles was to get in the whole 11 miles for my "long" run of the week.  It was horrible stopping and starting again.  I finished the 10K and kept running to complete 2 more miles.  Actually, I ran until the Garmin said 8 miles then lined up to start the 5K but had to wait 7 minutes to start.  My legs got tight and it pretty much killed me to do the last 3 miles of the day.  Even though my legs were dead, I had a smile on my face when I finished because Jessica was waiting for me!!!  YEAH!!!  

Other than running, Jessica and I did a lot of baking!  I am not sure how many different things exactly we made but it was a lot!  Thanks Jessica for an awesome weekend!!  You are the best!

My official time for the Phoenix 10K- 46:57 (7:34 pace).  I placed 182 overall out of 1,562 racers and 6th in my age/gender group.  My official time for the Phoenix 5K- 24:04 (7:45 pace).  I placed 134 overall out of 667 racers and 5th in my age/gender group.  The official double-header (10K + 5K) results aren't posted so I don't know where I stand for that grouping yet. (Will let you know as soon as they post them.)

***Don't forget to guess my 1/2 Marathon time for next weekend!***



  1. 1:28.41---That is my guess for your half time.

    I have never seen a double header! That is awesome!

    And YAY Jessica! She is awesome!!

  2. You are crazy... 1:28:41... Are you sure you didn't mean 1:41:35-ish (A 7:45 pace instead of a 6:45 pace??? If you meant the other one, just repost the new time under the prizes tab.) I am not sure about Vegas yet, need to see what the hubby thinks! I want to run it, I think it would be super fun! :) I second that Jessica is awesome!
