101 List: #60 Partake in a 10km Run

Saturday, September 18, 2010

This morning I got to check off another task on my 101 in 1001 list! Alongside my good friend Heidi, I ran the local 10k Abbotsford Police Run and we came in at our goal of one hour…maybe even just shy of the 60 minute mark?! We decided to run it a few short weeks ago and so we got running to get ready. 5k, 8k, 10k, bam. I so love running with Heidi. Not only is it motivating to have a running partner, but the chats we have while out on the road are great.

We wouldn’t have minded some rain on the run (how refreshing!), but the skies held and on second thought, that was probably the best thing. So many people came out to help with the run – which raised money for three local charities – and support us along the way. I think I would run a lot more often if I knew there would be people cheering and ringing cowbells…haha…or if there was someone just across the finish line with Booster Juice…thanks Shane :)

Heidi’s husband Gerry came out and took these pictures:

Time chip on – check.

Don’t we look cool doing the warm up?

And there we go…

And next year?! How about a half marathon?! Who’s up for it?
