Well, I did it! I ran my first 10k! Last Saturday the conditions could not have been more perfect. It was an absolutely gorgeous day in Milwaukee. As we ran, we enjoyed a beautiful view along Lake Michigan. My friend, Stacy, and I trained together, and stayed together throughout the race. I hope we will run many more races together.

It took about 66 minutes to complete the course, or a 10:39 pace. Not exactly a Boston Marathon qualifying time, but that’s fine with me. Training for this race has been a great journey. It has strengthened friendships, strengthened my own body, kept me focused, and given me a new confidence in my abilities. As you can see below, I have a great little training buddy and fan!
