I did it! Yesterday I ran in my first race...Several friends and I signed up in Oct. to run the Standard Charter 10K here in Hong Kong. Max was two weeks old when I registered, so this has been my incentive to get back in shape, post-baby!
Here I am picking up my race pack last weekend. It was all very organized, but with 67,000 people running you have to be!
Finished! It took me 1:01:53 to finish. It was SO congested, it was hard to pick up the pace. My goal was under an hour, but didn't quite get that..partly due to the fact that it was SO crowded. I was pleased with the time in the end.
It was so fun running with these great friends! Getting up at 3:45, traveling an hour to the start, running in the cold/dark/drizzle wouldn't have been fun without them!
The best part; breakfast afterwards!!
