The training began for a 10K because Scott wanted to do the Olympic distance triathlon. I had never run that distance before, but I was up for the challenge. The other kicker was that the triathlon was in North East, MD which is hilly. I live in Houston and there are no hills here. That made training tricky.
We travel lots in the summer so I had to fit in training runs at crazy times of the day and was very thankful for family to watch the kiddos while I ran. I was able to run hills on some of our trips. At home, I did sprint work hoping that would help me with the hills come race day.

I had a time in mind that I wanted to run. Having never run a 10K and especially on a hilly course, I was not sure what to expect. Well, I surpassed my goal time and was super excited to have run a 52:15. The best part was we finished third in the relay division and got MEDALS...so fun!! It was so fun. Hopefully Scott will be brave enough to do another relay with me next year!
|Our medals... aren't they big?!|
