Yesterday was my last big run before the half marathon on Saturday. I ran the 10K for the "Free Your Sole 5K 10K" race at Woodland Cemetary. It was a very hilly course and challenging, but it felt good to push myself after taking some time off the last two weeks to rest my knee.
The volunteers were super nice at the water stations, and everyone cheered as you came to the finish line (the 10K was the same course as the 5K, you just looped through again, so I got cheers two times). The friends and family members who were watching their friends and loved ones were very encouraging to the runners, even if they didn't know them. This was so nice.
This week I have a 5 mile run on Wednesday, bookended by 3 mile runs on Tues/Thurs, and then the half on Saturday. It's odd that my task list on Google now has so few things to do - it was very satisfying to check off each training run as I completed it.
