Workout Wanda: Hardest 10 mile race ever! Total of 10.11 miles with a pace of 11:02. I ended up with a final time of 1:50:49, not bad with the conditions!
Turns out I needlessly worried about rain. Instead we got snow. More snow than I’ve ever seen in the first week of October! When we left the house it wasn’t snowing but by the time we got half way to the race in Highlands Ranch it was snowing…a lot. And worse, it was sticking to the ground.
I was so freaking close to picking up my hoodies and heading home. I felt a little guilty about that so I talked myself into at least running the first part and potentially bailing out at the 5 mile turn around.
Ultimately I made it the full 10 miles but it wasn’t easy. It definitely made me feel seriously hardcore when I finished! I’ll be back with more deets later – I have some very tired legs to rest up and somehow that means I can’t type or think either…
