10K - Owwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!

Hubby and I ran a 10k yesterday morning - it was the 20th annual Chile Pepper race, a 10k cross country race. I did ok considering I haven't been running much at all and hadn't even run in 10 days with vacation, etc. Ran the 6.2 miles in 53 minutes - 8:30 pace. Again, happy with my time b/c of how little I have been running and b/c it is cross country which means I could probably run faster on the road. Which brings me to leggies are really sore...I am so glad I didn't do legs later in the day yesterday - I had considered it. Whoa!

Hubby did great! Ran it in 45 minutes - and considering we BOTH just came back from a week of eating and drinking - he did awesome.

More later kids. Have some news to share with you later today. :)

HI Jessica~

I just found your blog thru comments on others. Hope you don't mind me reading.

I don't consider myself a great runner either, but on the one race I did (5miler), my time was pretty good...and that is with no training.

Way to go on the run!

SO glad you found my blog! Yeah! Would you mind adding me to your blog so I can follow your journey? If not, I completely understand - but would love your support as well. is my email address.

I run with my hubby because it is something we love to do together. And I like the feeling of accomplishment! It is great! And I love the camaraderie! People are so supportive! Thanks for your kind words!
