Upcoming 10K race!

“Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.” 
Vincent Van Gogh


This coming Sunday I will be running a 10K race as part of my training for my eventual marathon. It's actually suggested on my training schedule and I decided to register. I'm quite excited, because the only time I ever ran a 10K race was in May 2010...it was my first ever race...and I had been running for less than a year. At the time, I ran my 10K in 60m44s. This time, I would really really like to break 1 hour. However, I do know that just because I've got more running experience doesn't mean that much...anything can happen. But, I would be so thrilled. Wish me luck :)

Cheers!

Good luck, I am sure that you will break the 1 hour that you have set for yourself.

I will be doing a 10K this year too... can't wait!

Hey...your first 10K is exactly 11 seconds different than mine was! :) I'm sure you'll be able to break an hour this time. Good luck!

Now that you've had more running experience, I think you'll meet your sub-60 goal. Hoping for a great race day for you!

Oh boy - you are going to have a great time. I love the 10k distance. Just long enough - but not too long. HAVE A GREAT TIME!

Thanks for the blog update, Anne. I had lost your site! Nice to be back.
Good luck in your race Sunday. I know you'll rock the course.
P.S. I'm terribly jealous of your treadmill room. Can I fly over in the winter and run on it?

Amy said...

Good luck! 10K is my favorite distance!

I never do tuneup races during training, but it's such a good idea. Have fun!

Johann said...

That's great! I haven't run a 10k race in 2.5 years but will do one on 3 July. I will probably run around 1 hour as well. My best 10km is 47:13 but that was in a different body that didn't have all these ultras in it. I'm sure you'll go sub 1 hour. All the best and enjoy the race!
