I almost missed running this race as my car’s battery got fully drained and this was the first time I was running solo so just took a cab to the Fort. The first time I had to run on my own and I ended up car less but this was still another shot at a better time. This was one of the most organized runs with race marshals in every corner cheering you. I just kept pushing myself in this race – limiting my usual walking rests and after all the pushing, I ended up shaving 6 minutes from my 10K time. This made me believe that a sub60 goal was possible and I do belong running alongside 10K runners. The race also had the best loot bag giveaways and they even had a post event souvenir mailed to you.
Finally, the first real sign that training was working. I can’t wait for another chance to run for a better personal record.
