Pace for the Race

Monday started the annual Pace for the Race. Last year I lead the walking group and I've ran the walking group for Women Can Run the last two yrs as well, so I decided to step it up a notch or two. They have two 5k groups beginners and intermediate and then two 10k groups beginners and intermediate. I know I can walk and run a little and I knew I could do both distances, so I decided to go with the beginning 10k group with did 3min running/2 min walking for a total of 40 minutes. I did well, I survived I was slowly then the rest and the leader was concerned that I could not keep up when we step it up on Thursday. So I talked to the wonderful guy over the entire clinic and he going to get someone to run with me Thursday, he refuses to let me drop to the 5k because he believes I can do it. And you know what I believe in my most important. I'm looking forward to the next 13 weeks and seeing how far I can go.

Good for you on the 10K! I did a running group last year and was the slowest... I ended up dropping out because it was irritating the leader (great inspiration from her, eh?) I just ran a 5K in 35mins on Labour Day. Good for you for arranging someone to run with and keep it up. You CAN do it!

Oh and thanks for the award! I didn't even see my name at first :) I was busy being proud of you for sticking with it.
