Yesterday I ran the Monument 10K, which (I’ve heard) is one of the 20 largest races in the country! I’m not surprised, considering there were 40,000 people signed up! I couldn’t believe how many runners there were, and I REALLY couldn’t believe how much support there was!
There were bands playing at every corner, there were people cheering us on the whole way. Definitely the most fun 6 miles I’d ever run!
Before the race:
I don’t have any pictures from the actual race yet, but the race website should have some posted soon!
I didn’t run fast, (Eric and I stuck together for the whole race, and we finished in just over 62 min) but I had fun, and that’s what matters! It was a little tricky navigating through such a large crowd, but I will definitely do it again next year!
After the race, Eric and I decided we needed to have a huge brunch, complete with mimosas!
On my plate is TJ’s Soy Chorizo, stir fried with some potatoes, peppers, and a little cheese, served with a sunny side “down” egg On that plate in the background is TJ’s Pumpkin Pancakes, with pecans. SO delicious. My tummy was very pleased. Oh, and the mimosa was fresh pineapple juice + champagne. So tasty.
So now I can check the 10k off my list of goals! I think I’m going to try a 10 miler next… and hopefully work my way up to a half marathon!
What goals have you checked off recently? Have you added any new ones?
