Check this out. 10K road race through London. Sounds amazing, right?
I really, really want to run this race, but I’m having trouble signing up because it’s £50 ($75)! Normally I wouldn’t hesitate, but my mom is coming to visit next month and I’m taking her to Rome for a few days so I don’t want to compromise that level of fun. I keep having all these random expenses here and there so I’m trying to watch it.
Even though I’ve lived here for three years, I still think it would be so much fun to race on a course that has some of the most famous sites in the world.
I asked my co-workers what they thought about the race and if anyone would like to race with me, and here are some random samples:
“I’m not a runner. I can barely walk.”
“I sweat getting out of bed in the morning.”
“Why don’t you just walk past the sites?”
After running a fairly easy five miles Saturday (as far as I’ve gone since my 10K during the Air Force Marathon) I started feeling like I could run this 10K with an actual time goal rather than a goal of simply running the whole thing as was my goal for my other 10K.
P.S.: Did you notice that’s not actually me in the London Eye picture? Like my sister, my friend Robin is also frequently mistaken for me (or I for her) so I feel fairly comfortable stealing her image. 🙂
