I’m going on the run again. I gained entry into the Medtronic Twin Cities 10 mile race again this. I was one of the 1000 lucky finishers of the one mile race in May who was randomly selected for guaranteed entry into the 10 mile race later this year. I finished the one mile race in 6 minutes and 3 seconds. My goal was to get under 6 minutes. I could have made it in less than 6 minutes but I promised my neurologist that I wouldn’t push it while running this year. Race day is October 6th, 2013.
In this year’s 10 mile race I’m running with the Act FAST run team sponsored by the Minnesota Stroke Association. My wife will run too if she gains entry to the race. We have a running coach who is working with us on weekends until the race. I’ve never had a running coach. Yesterday I ran 6 miles. Last year it took me until September to get to 6 miles. If I make it through this year with no injuries, my goal is to run the full Marathon next year. It’s a big jump from 10 miles to 26.2 but I know I can do it.
