Today, Adam and I ran our very first 10K! The rain held off, and we headed to Manchester to run 6.2 miles. Of course I took pictures while I ran, because I didn't want yall to miss a thing!
And we're off! This was the last time I saw Adam (in the white shirt) before I crossed the finish line. He's a tad bit faster than me.
The rain held off just long enough for everyone to finish the race before the bottom fell out. It made for a VERY windy run.
The route was interesting to say the least. We ran through some random neighborhoods and Manchester's very lively downtown (that's sarcasm....). The course was pretty hilly just like I suspected.
Manchester's finest blocked some of the roads for us. The other roads we had to fin for ourselves....
A fellow lady runner noticed me taking pictures as I ran and caught up with me and asked if I wanted her to take a picture of me running. YES, please! This all happened while running. No stopping - not even for pictures!
Heading towards downtown. I tried with this picture, but taking pictures while running is a fine art that I have yet to master.
Not only did Adam and I complete our very first 10K today, but we both placed first in our age divisions!
Adam finished in 51 minutes and some change (can't remember the seconds) making him 11th overall and first place in the Men's 20-29 category!
I finished in 57 minutes (and some change) making me 18th overall and first place in the Women's 20-29 category.
