This morning I completed my second consecutive 10 mile running race. It was the Twin Cities 10 mile race. We had perfect conditions for running. Temperatures in the mid-40’s and clear. I finished the race on 1 hour and 13 minutes. I averaged 7:24 minute miles.
Compared to last year, I finished 11 minutes quicker! Next year, if I get my doctors approval, I plan to try to compete in the Twin Cities marathon. I know going form 10 miles to 26.2 is quite a jump. I also know that if I train for it there is nothing I can’t do
This year I ran on the Minnesota Stroke Association’s Act FAST run team. We had about 30 runners in the races this weekend. As a team, we raised almost $9,000. I know that this money will help my fellow survivors.
