2009 Fall Festival – 10K – 49:44

This week is already off to a better start in the training department!

The 10K race went .75 miles through town and then out and back on country roads and finished at the park we started at. This course had rolling hills throughout. It was also nice and humid – 97%.

I was so happy to find that during my warm up that I zero foot pain. And as we raced I had no issues from my foot whatsoever. I was elated! Even with all the hills it was just so nice to be out and racing.

I PRed! And I won 1st in my age group! Rob also got an instant PR being is first 10K race and finished in 50:09.

There was an issue with the medals and they were not available at the race. The race director said they would be mailed out. We each did score two $10 coupons at Dick’s Sporting Goods, which will be great to stock up on some cold weather gear.

Update: My medal came in the mail.
