A year ago on Monday marked my 10k anniversary. On July 14, 2013 I ran my first 10k, the Biggest Loser 10k, here in DC. It was the first time that I ran a race of a distance further than a 5k.
Its hard to believe just how far I’ve come in the past year! Since then, I’ve completed three additional 10ks, as well as a ten miler and two half marathons. My next 10k won’t be until September when I run the Dulles Day 10k on the Runway (you can check out my recap of the 5k from last year here). Since I powerwalked my last 10k in January, and haven’t run a 10k race since October, I’m very interested to see how much I can improve my finish time by, especially since the Dulles Day 10k course is on the airport runway at Dulles Airport and will be super flat.
Here’s to many more 10ks in the future, as well as other long distance races!
QOTD: What milestone race did you run a year ago?
