Plaza10k today was the first 10k in a series of three. It begins the Heartland 30k. I ran this last year in 63 minutes. Today – 73 minutes. In my subconscious I’m okay with this. In my heart and mind, I know I’m better. No excuses. I just need to do better next week at my next 10k. 

Difficult night sleeping. I was anxious like a kid on Christmas Eve. But more so, I thought of my dad. For two reasons. 1. He’s the biggest New England Patriots fan ever known. This is the first game without my dad. To hear him curse at the officials, yell at poor play-calling, and refuse to ever watch again. I miss my dad every day, minute. I’d always call when I finished a race. He’d say, “Great job, honey. You did great. That’s an awful long run for someone who’s not crazy.”  I love him and really had to concentrate to not think too much during my run. 

Enjoy the pictures of this weeks challenge. Next week, another 10k. And hopefully with a better time!
