Re: Anyone loves running races?
I used to run races a lot, but no time right now to train properly. 10K and half marathon were my favorites. My personal best on 10K was like 42 minutes, but I consider anything under an hour to be a good time. My half best was like 1:46 or something. If you can do a 10K in less than an hour, you will have no problem with a half, go for it! It's really addictive.
I did one mararhon, did a 4:05, really bummed I could not break 4 hours, that's all I wanted but I didn't pace myself right and ny knees just died around 23 miles and I had to slow down. It was a great experience, but it killed my body training for it, I had to do physical therapy for hips and rear end, it was great to finish, but I can't do that to my body again.
I might do a half next year if I can train properly.
How many 10Ks have you done? I hate 5K, just running as fast as you can for 20 minutes is no fun.
