Some reflections on the Artichoke 10K (in Pescadero, on April 11):

  • 6.2 miles is a lot easier than it seemed 2 months ago…it was actually a lot of fun
  • Our next 10K (if there is one) will be much easier, since I would hope there aren’t high winds and pouring rain like there were on Sunday
  • If there are high winds, much better to run into the wind the first half, so that you can run with the wind during the second half!
  • The artichokes (now in our stomachs) that we were given for finishing were much more fun to win than the medals (which are now in the garbage)
  • Race organizers should probably figure out a way to have more than 1 toilet available for the 100+ runners to use before a race
  • Would be handy to have  a wristwatch to have some idea of my pace
  • A 10K in the morning makes it much easier to justify a big brunch, a tin roof sundae (with Secret Breakfast), and donuts in the afternoon

    You made it! Way to go! My hip is still hurting, so I’m a little jealous, but mostly inspired!

    P.S. Happy Belated Birthday. 🙂
