My 10K on the Fourth of July

 

Just finished the Scripps Ranch Old Pros 10K run.  My legs are on fire, my back is killing me and I'm am HUNGRY! Having said all of that, I am smiling from EAR to EAR right now because I ran the race faster than expected! I had hoped an easy 8min mile and it turned out to be a 7:17 average pace. . .WHAT?!?

This year there was a record number of runners out there and the weather was perfect this morning.  Not too hot and definitely not too cold.  Everyone was in such great spirits and just "happy"!

I got to see some of my friends and new competitors out there.  The ladies did fantastic and a lot of the high school kids did awesome as well! I hope that everyone has a fantastic 4th of July Weekend.  Stay safe!
