I just ran a new 10k PR!
Glen and I went to Red Mountain Park tonight to get our run in and so his kids could go rollerblading. Since I've never ran there, I told him to lead the way. He took off real fast. I kept close behind and followed him. He seemed to be making up the course as we went. That made it all the more fun. I'm used to my boring runs around the block. And there were some nice rolling hills. After two of his random loops we had gone about 3 miles. Glen said, "Let's go another two laps." I knew we were right around a 7:30 pace, and if we kept it up I would be on pace to break my 10k PR. So we ran another couple of laps with his kids occasionally trying to stay up with us on the uphills and passing us on the downhills. I watched my Garmin so I could stop it at 6.20 miles. 47:11. I'm pretty sure I can get closer to 45:00 if I tried, but I haven't ran a 10k in forever. Nevertheless, a new unofficial PR is nice.
