Tufts Healthcare Plan 10K for Women

Ah its been awhile! I been super busy at work and life in general. BUT this past Monday I completed my goal of the Tufts Healthcare Plan 10k for Women. The race was an amazing event.... and I am definitely coming back next year!

So it turns out that some Olympic Athletes and women travel around the world to run in this race. The women who won it was from Ethiopia and finished the 10K in 31.33... crazy right!

I Picked the 8:50 pace time.... it was good motivation! I loved these little bracelets!

Kensie and I waiting to run!

Lining up! 

So many people at the starting line! 

 And my official time! This was my net time so the time I ran over the two recording this.

It was just around what I wanted  to do, but I was hopping for better. I have been struggling with a cold which made the last week of training near impossible. (I ran 2 3.1 miles- one in my fastest 5K). It was more how much this cold has taken effect on my body, I was gagging at one point on my phlegm! YUCK!

I want to get one more 10K in before I do not have to run in snow. May be November 10th! Yikes! SO no slacking of training!
