The first 10K

I did manage to finish my first 10k. Though not in the time I was hoping for (1 hour). It took me 01:11:12 instead. It was pretty satisfying nevertheless. Usually I run with my MP3 player but during the race I didn't. Just wanted to feel the environment, surroundings, everything... Racing has its own advantages. First of all it gives a good perspective on where you stand as far as speed is concerned (The guy who came first clocked 00:33:40) and life in general (80 year olds passed me by). Second it can be quite motivating to see so many fast and fit bodies in action. Anywho, my main goal was to enjoy the moment and I did. Every bit of it. You should try it some time.
