Sasha’s First 10k

24 Oct

So last Saturday my awesome wife attempted to run her first 10k. She ran her first 5k last year and had been looking forward to getting to try a 10k. She convinced a friend to run it with her and they began training together.
While training they never ran further than the 5k distance. Sasha’s goal was to be able to run the first 5k and then run as much of the rest as she could, walking when needed.

Starting the race!

Apparently the costumes people wore as part of the Halloween 10k were useful for more than just a good laugh. They also provided Sasha a nice distraction from the rigors of running, and she proudly crossed the finish line having ran the entire race.

Successful completion

Having now doubled the furthest distance she has ever run, Sasha is beginning training for a half marathon. I have never run that far either, so this will be a challenge for us to overcome together.

Congratulations Sasha and Kendra!!
