I Did It!

I ran the 10K at London's Run today! I was soooo nervous about it last night and this morning. Considering I just started running again on January 1st, I wasn't sure I was ready for a 10K. The most I had run was 5 miles (last week) and that was using the Galloway run a mile/walk a minute method.

But around 6:30 this morning, my dear friend Tiff picked me up and off we went to run the 10K. We took off together, but Tiff quickly pulled ahead. I had a huge smile on my face as I ate her dust. She is AMAZING and I admire her so much. She ran the 10K in under and hour. I ran it in an hour and four minutes.

There were a few times through the 6 and a half miles that I started to panic a little, thinking, "Am I crazy? Why do I think I can do this?" When that happened, I focused on getting into Pose Tech and RELAXING and that gave me the boost I needed to keep going. It felt really good. The best news is that I didn't pee myself. Long story. Well, not long, just embarassing, so let's just leave it at that!

Next year I hope to do the half marathon.

Pictures coming as soon as Tiff uploads them and I steal them from her blog!

Sandi, I am so glad I found your blog. CONGRATS on your run, how wonderful. I have always wanted to but I just haven't found the nerve.

Glad to hear you made it and survived.
