I did it! I ran my first 10K today. Wichita has a big street festival every year and they kick it off with a 10K race in which I participated. I, obviously, did not win. My time was 1:08- this is not very fast but it was faster than lots of other people who ran the race. I got a t-shirt and even a medal. It felt great and I continued to feel great all day. I am training for several other races and unfortunately for you good folk you will probably have to hear about all of them, for a while at least. I am almost embarrassed about how much I am loving this whole running thing. For once, I am thrilled to have been wrong.
