Friends' First Race

by - Friday, June 08, 2012

Tomorrow three of my friends will be running their very first race ever, the Lawyers Have Heart 10K in DC.

A while back, I told you that Lauren and Hadass asked me to put together a training plan for them, and 10 weeks later, we're one day out from the race.

The training is done, and despite some nerves, I think everyone is going to do a great job tomorrow.

The race is a pretty low key charity race that draws a big crowd of runners and walkers. Apparently there are also medals for all the finishers and a big post-race party, which I think makes it a pretty ideal first race.

It's been nearly three years since I've run a 10K -- kind of hard to believe -- so I'm curious what I can do time wise at that distance.

I would love to set a new PR, but it's supposed to be warm and sunny tomorrow and I tend to run pretty slowly when it's hot outside.

Either way, I'm excited to race with friends tomorrow and cheer them on as they cross the finish line!
