Winter Training Circuit 10 Mile

Today was the Winter Training Circuit 10 mile race and it was tough! I ran it last year with my friend, Rachel, but I must have been distracted chatting with her because I don't remember it being so brutal!  The course started at the Dee Events Center in Ogden and looped through different neighborhoods with lots of hills. It was a great day for a run and I felt pretty good, but I kept getting side aches. I'd slow down my pace a little bit to get the side ache to go away, but it kept coming back. It was so frustrating trying to run with a side ache.

My boys came to cheer for me and Will tried to take a running picture of me with his camera. When I passed him, he was holding up his camera and yelled, "got it." I looked at the camera later to see the picture he took, but there wasn't one. He's such a cute boy!

Anyway, I was so happy to cross the finish line. I ran 1:07:24.6, which is 6:44 per mile and took 1st place. My time wasn't great, but I'm happy with it due to the tough, hilly course.
