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!***
