Virtual 10k with the Black Knights

  Today is usually my stat update, but I am exactly the same as last week and those measurements are only 4 posts down so I'm going to skip the update this week.  I will say though that I was worried during the week because my weight was up a bit due to birthday meals and drinking, but this morning 121 on the dot :)  Next Thursday is my 5k race and Thanksgiving, maybe I will move my weigh-in to Friday, that is some motivation to not stuff myself right there.




Instead today I am going to post about the virtual 10k race I ran this morning.  The 10k is being hosted by the wonderful Stefano from Run With the Black Knights, who I found through Julie's Running Blog. The rules are to run 10k (it does not have to be a race) between Nov.8 -Nov. 28 while wearing something black.  Today was my distance day so I figured I would try to push it and run a decent time as well.  My course was 1.5 miles from my house to the local NYS park, 3.2 miles in the park and 1.5 m back to my house.

All Blacked Out
 (PhotoBooth pics are always so blurry from a distance, I need to start using my real camera more)

Except for my colorful shoes and socks.

10k's are scary, I'm more of a 5k person :P

Heading out the door.

Result:


46:47

Thank you Stefano for hosting this 10k, it helped me push myself more on my distance day.  I often tend to zone out on my longer runs and end up running some slow miles especially in the middle.  Now I have to look for a real 10k to participate in!
