The race itself was quite the challenge for me. I took off way too fast and was running just over a 6 minute pace until the first half mile. My app told me my pace and I freaked thinking I couldn't maintain and needed to slow it down big time. I admit because of that mistake I was challenged to keep going at times and wanted to walk at various points, but I didn't. Glad I didn't either, because I wouldn't have made my goal.

Gage officially started high school this week at Haas Hall in Bentonville at their new campus. He said he liked it. I got to admit, he looked rather spiffy in his new uniform.
Next week Steven starts back. I only work 2.5 days because the littles babysitter is on vacation. I officially signed up for a 10k next month, so my training will have to be upped a bit. The distance isn't so much an issue but learning to pace and keeping my shins in check. They actually did good today. I couldn't have been happier. I just have to stop myself from racing out too fast. It's the sprinter in me coming out. But I am not running sprints. Oy!
