I relaxed with some of both last night.
Yesterday morning I ran the farthest I’ve ever run in my life – 10 kilometers (6.21 miles)! I ran The Stride 10k (benefit for Littleton public schools) with Lisa and she was an amazing running partner. We ran the entire length and didn’t stop. Now, I know to some this is no big deal but I typically run only about 3 miles at a time and have been doing that for 10 years off and on. Also, I only ran about 5 times in the past month. So I had serious doubts about my ability to run the full 10k without stopping.
But we did it! I’m so proud of us – here we are just after completing the run:
There were some hills on the damned thing too. See the profile below. Sure there’s some vertical exaggeration but still! I had no idea Littleton had so much elevation gain and loss…I know it’s no trail run.
