March 17, 2012 (St. Patricks Day) I ran the Spectrum 10K in Ivans, Utah. It was my second 10K. It was a great race, beautiful scenery, not that I was paying too much attention to that...haha.
I had heard that the last 2 miles was all a steady incline, but I didn't expect all the other inclines too. :) It was challenging. But, It was great! All that was on my mind was "I gotta be faster than 59:22." That was my last 10K time, so I just wanted to make sure I beat that. I love that running is just me against myself trying to improve each time. I'm glad I had some great friends to do it along with. So fun! I'll probably for sure do it again next year.
This is us after the race...We did it!! It was Nikki & Jen's first 10K, they did great!

All 3 of us :)
There was some great race pics posted on the sports photographers site, but I would have to pay for them :) They showed me finishing and during the race...I sorta wish I had them. But, I really don't want to pay that much for them. You can check out the link of the pics HERE...some of them make me laugh.
My time was 58:13
57 out of 105 in my age group
214 out of 459 women
440 out of 776 overall
I'm pretty much in the middle, and I'm fine with that. :)
I'm always looking for the next thing to sign up for...it keeps me going. I thought I would give this virtual 10K a try on Memorial Day. Sounds like fun! Check it out. You want to join me?
