Today is my first 10k. I have run on some marathon relays where my leg equaled that of a 10k but I have never raced this distance. I am only slightly nervous mainly because of the unknown. The course is unfamiliar. The town is unfamiliar. The racing distance is unfamiliar.

My sister and I were going to run it together. Just something we decided to throw into a family reunion weekend. It's an hour and a half away so not really close but the best we could do. My aunt and uncle joined up with us and we recruited my husband for a little driver/race support. I will be my aunt's first race ever. She is doing the 5k. My oldest son and niece also joined in the road trip.

4:00 came awfully early this morning. I managed to stay in bed for a while but no sleep would come. Now I have my first cup of coffee nearly finished and my blog nearly written.

It's been 80 pounds since I last "raced" at this distance. I can't wait to celebrate both "victories". I got my reward yesterday. It wasn't what I had planned. I swapped my 80 pound and my 100 pound rewards on the reward list. I will let you know what it is in a day or two.

Alien Chase 10K, here we come.

How did you do in the 10k?

Congratulations on 80 pounds. That's incredible. You should be so proud. ;)
