see how they run

Yesterday I crossed off another line item on the “stuff I might get around to” list: I ran in the Capitol 10k. For most runners this really would be no big deal, but given that my running habit is highly irregular at best, this was the longest distance I’ve run in over 15 years.

All things considered, I’m pleased with the results: I managed to run the whole thing without any stops to walk, and my mile pace—a measly 10:48/mi—was still slightly faster than my mile pace over just 5 kilometers back in November. Of course, in the November race I was pushing a jogging stroller with Graham in it, probably about 35 pounds of combined weight there, but never mind that: I’m choosing to be pleased with this result and don’t try to convince me otherwise.

folks before you had this to say:

  1. Sarah Rehm

    I think that’s awesome! I pay much more attention to the mileage over the time and 6.2 miles totally rocks! Great job. :)

  2. Chris Kardos

    And you never stopped to pee? I find that hard to believe.

got something to say about that?
