The 10K course went 3.1 miles to a turnaround and then back the same 3.1 miles. The course was about 3/4 of a mile in town and then out into the country.

One Crazy Penguin came out to cheer for us. She is an amazing athlete. In October, she completed her first Half Ironman - 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike and 13.1 mile run. You can read her race report here. One unexpected surprise of blogging is the fun inspiring people I have met. It was great to meet one of them in person. We are looking forward to cheering her on at an upcoming race. It was freezing cold and she could not have been more kind and gracious about waiting almost an hour and a half for me to finish. Thank you, Tiina!
I was very happy with my time 1:27:36. And I beat 2 people - bonus :) I love the stats from my Garmin watch. I was happy to see that even though I struggled (mostly emotionally) the last few miles I kept my pace very consistent. And I still can't believe I can walk a mile in 13 1/2 minutes!!
My husband finished in 50:11 and earned 1st place in his age group (6th place overall). I am SO proud of him!!! I am definitely going to have to make a plan to display his medals. My husband also won an attendance prize - $25 restaurant gift certificate :)
