Last Sunday, I ran the Twin Cities 10 mile race. It was a beautiful morning, with the temperature in the low 40′s at start time. I also spent a few hours walking through the health and fitness expo on Saturday held at the Excel Energy center coinciding with race packet pickup. I just felt like I was right where I was supposed to be, like I belonged there. Runners are such an incredible group of people that strive to do their very best, while supporting their fellow runners at the same time.
I ran the 10 mile course in 1:27:09, which averages out to be an 8:43 per mile pace. I enjoyed every second of it. As I crossed the finish line, I decided that my goal is to run the full marathon next year. I’m starting my training immediately, as my goal is to make my 4th marathon my very best. So don’t be surprised if you see marathon training updates from time to time.
After I crossed the finish line I did a little fist pump, which made me think of these Friday posts here on EOD. That made me laugh just a little bit, because even after a 10 mile run, I still can’t get personal finance posts out of my head. You know the drill, check ‘em out, and show ‘em some love.
