And, now for other news…

A friend and I ran the Marine Corps 10k (6.2 miles NOT the marathon!) last Sunday. While this was not my first run, it was my first 10k, so I don’t have other times to compare directly with this run. But, I did finish in 81mins, including two bathroom breaks and I did walk a little (my knee was feeling funny). So, if you subtract 2 mins for the bathroom breaks, that puts me at 79 mins, or 12:50mins/mile. This is a significant improvement over my Cherry Blossom 10 Mile run in April 2007 (14:46 minute pace) and even more improvement over the 2006 Cherry Blossom (16:20 minute pace). So, YAY ME!

We have another 10k coming up in December, and then the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler again in April. My goal for the 2008 Cherry Blossom is less than 13mins/mile (it is longer than a 10k, you know).
