Finished my first 10 k!!!!

Saturday, November 08, 2014

I finished my 1st Cajun Cup 10 K in 1 hour and 31 minutes!
I even jogged some on the last half.
ate 2 bowls of jambalaya with chicken and sausage that was fantastic!!!!!
then came home and hubby and I went out for lunch I just had a bowl of cabbage and remulaude dressing, think a spicy coleslaw. I have a smoothie to finish just could not finish drinking something so cold when I was getting ready to be cold.
I started out with 2 shirts and a sweater and scarf and mittens and ear muffs which I never put on. As the walk progressed off came the gloves, then scarf then sweater. I had yoga pants on and a pair of work out pants over them.
It is a beautiful sunny day today.
their were around 1350 runners/walkers and I finished near the end in front of 38 people. I started jogging because I did not want to be last!!!
so the last half I jogged off and on I finished 10 minutes faster than my buddy elizabeth. She was a trooper about it all. She had not been training at all and developed blisters on her pads of her feet.
WE were both complaining of our hips bothering us. She is only 27 and I am 51. I think the fastest time was 30 minutes, that is amazing to me.
WE both talked about signing up for another one but will think about it.
I am glad that I did it. She remembered where we parked I did not.
