The Boulder Boulder 10K

What a rush! In my life the farthest I have run is 4.5 miles and that wasn't even recently. Until the Boulder Boulder. For those not local to Colorado, it is a race of about 54,000 runners that falls on Memorial Day. My goal wasn't to run the whole thing just finish in under a certain time, especially since I hadn't really trained for this distance and an certainly not an athlete. Well, I ran the entire 6.2 miles and made great time. It was so much fun I am going to start training for a half marathon in October.

I owe many thanks to my own personal cheerleader, thanks babe:)

Wow! You are amazing! I decided to train for a marathon after Paul was born, but we decided to have Brigham shortly thereafter an the goal was set aside. I may have to pick it up. Thanks for sharing!

Are you going to do it again this year? I'm thinking it might be fun. I haven't done a 10k before but would be good timing before the Ragnar relay the middle of June.
