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.
