At last my running race draught is coming to an end! Norak has agreed to do a 10k with me in September.
I knew when I got prego that I would want to do a race, but I needed to be über picky. I debated signing up for a half marathon but the course turned out to be a bit of trail running and I’m already clumsy enough, plus the dual-terrain training would be difficult.
The 15K/nine miles is an optimum distance and Norak is the best running partner in crime. I should forewarn you that obviously I will not be running for time; don’t think I’m going to be able to beat my half PR of sub 1:40, haha. I do have a goal in mind, but will probably keep it to myself, as running a race alone is competition enough. This is definitely about listening to your body.
Training starts today and I couldn’t be more excited! Who would have thought I actually love the discipline of a running schedule.
Do you have a favorite race distance?
