Decided to try the local Seal Beach 10K. Course is some of the same course that I run with AREC and TRH, and NOT 2 loops. Loops get to be unbearable when they are fewer than 5 miles long, because the scenery is not all that exciting.
My Plantar Fasciitis is still bugging me quite a bit, but I am starting to get back to a similar running prowess I achieved before my injury. It was warm out, but I managed to finish in 45:18. VERY happy with that time.
I noted, however, that had I run in the 5K, I would have received a medal. =( My theory is that in races with a 5K and a 10K, the more competitive people will run the 10K, because they don’t want to pay for a sprint when they can do a medium distance run.
