...And a 10K Rocks!!! (Guest Blogger Nikki G)

These are the reflections of Nicole, my friend and partner in racing crime from the weekend!

On last Saturday, I competed in the Boardwalk Relay for Hunger in Asbury Park, NJ. I placed 11 out of 32 women in the 10K individual. My time was 58:15. This is the race that prompted the 12 wk training program that I've logged on FB. This all started because of my friend Donna, who asked me to participate in the race with her. I gladly said yes as we competed in a 5k together 4 years ago. Ironically, we haven't run together since. It just so happens that we actually didn't run together for this race either because she's had 3 wonderful events take place in her life in a matter of 2.5 months, which led to us having different training schedules.

Needless to say, it was a warm 80 degrees in Asbury Park on Saturday. This was a beautiful race on the boardwalk right next to the beach. Since it was 8:30am, there was nobody out there. Just the waves, the sand, and the sun for me to look at for little less than an hour. Thanks so much for the love and support during the past 12 weeks.

I might be running a half marathon this Sunday that starts in New Rochelle @9am. After that, I have no idea when I'll be racing again, but of course I will keep you posted.
