Love, Sweat and Cheers!

Race Report: Tufts 10K for Women
October 10, 2005
1:26:26 (13:55 pace)
Overall: 4193
AG: 1200/1263

My first 10K, and first time running over 5 miles. A cold, wet, windy day in Boston but a great spirit all around the Common. 6000 women registered, getting together to show their power, strength, and athletic ability!

I ran the whole bloody thing. Finished in 1:26:26 (chip time - and my watch agreed), hardly rockstar but I wanted to average 13-something and I did. I made the top 4200 too, out of 6000+ entrants ;-)) Official times stopped at 2 hours, and I bet a lot of people bailed. There were alnost 1300 women just in my age group. Race felt fine, although my hips are a tad achy. I'm happy I did it despite the freezing cold and wind and pouring rain. Brrrrr, I'm getting cold again just thinking about it.
