Today my friend Stephanie and I got up super early to go to Cedar Rapids to run a race there. Here is a picture before the race.
This is my 9th race of the year. I never thought I'd like running, but today I actually had a great time. My time was 1:04:14 this beats my last 10K time of over a minute. I placed 13 out of 17 in my age group.
Here is a list of the races I've done so far this year:
May I did a 5K in Marion
June I did a 10K in Iowa City then a 5K in Burlington, Iowa
July I did a 5K, Half Marathon and the Bix 7 mile
August so far I have done a 5K and a 10K
I have a few more races planned, but the one I'm actually looking forward to is the Half Marathon on September 11th. My goal is to run the entire race because my first Half Marathon I walked half of it.
These are all small steps towards the ultimate goal of a Marathon by next October 2011.
