I Am 10K recap

12 Jan

I ran a foggy 10K this morning in Newport News.  The I Am 10K was at Newport News Park.  Even though it was foggy, it really was the perfect weather for a race, nice and cool.

This was the first year for the race, but I was impressed with how smoothly it went.  They had water stops (sometimes forgotten the first go around), and even some race encouragement on the course.  I had to little things that could have been better. The directions to the parking lot to park were a little confusing (if you were coming from the East the directions did not work) and the start times for the race seemed to keep changing.  Little things that I’m sure will be fixed next year. 

The I Am 10K is a trail race.  Trail races are my favorite for two reasons…a) the scenery is always changing thus I don’t get bored and b) I just like to play in the mud!

I Am Fitness put on the race and had a very positive vibe for the race throughout.  All the swag had a positive message and they even had positive notes on the mile markers.  My favorite…

Mainly because…I was tired.  I didn’t even read the Mile 6 sign because I knew that I only had .2 to go and I didn’t care anymore. 

This was a really fun race and I would definitely do it again.  I finished in 1:11, which is not to shabby for me!

The rest of the day calls for cupcake eating (which I already did and was delicious) and napping. 

Hope your weekend is off to a great start!
