It's official - I have now done all the road race distances this year. 5K, 10K, relay race, half and full marathon. And that is the only reason I signed up for the Freedom 10K instead of 5K. I really wanted to get a PR at this race so I talked my SIL Kami into running it with me. She's a speedy runner and I knew she would help push me. The race started at 7:00 am and it was already in the 70's when we started. It was a very hot and muggy race. It was a really tough course too - it started going uphill, then flat and down for a while then another uphill at mile 4.5 then the last 3/4 mile was uphill to the finish. The end was HORRIBLE. I had to turn the tunes up loud to make myself keep pushing. But we did it and I was happy once it was over. Especially since I didn't throw up .... it felt like I was going to for a few minutes after!
P.S. beating my PR wasn't too hard since the last 10K I ran was in 2009 :)
