Pancakes!

I did a 10K today. I've found recently that I wear my iPod, but I am not turning it on. I'm not sure why, I just  find myself zoning out and thinking about this and that. So, I was plodding along trying to remember if I have ever run a 10K and I don't think I ever have. Weird, 5K, 15K, 8 mile, half, but I cannot remember a 10. Best news - that makes this a PR!

I'm using some longer races in place of long training runs in preparation for an upcoming half. Plus I think I get more out of these runs than a training run because I push my pace a bit. They are definitely a lot more fun! I've figured out I'm a medal whore though. I missed getting the bling at the end. :)

They were serving pancakes after the race, but the line was over a block long! Thankfully my buddies didn't want to wait in line either. So we went for breakfast and coffee someplace warm. We talked about new gear we've been trying out which I'll have to cover in another post because I need to get cleaning! I want the house sparkling because my husband is coming home tomorrow night! I am so excited! Happy Weekend!

You're one of my inspirations. I hope to run like you when I grow up. (in running of course!)

Good for you doing a 10 k today. I'm hoping to see you at the half you are doing if it's the one we spoke about in Chicago, my daughter is also running in it and we will all be there to cheer her on!
