Hello,my bucket list friends ! As you can tell from the title of this post I just crossed another item off my bucket list and I’m very excited to tell all of you about it ! Here we go!
Bucket list #212 finish a 10k
I’ve done many 5k races and even the Disneyland half marathon ( You can read about it HERE) but I had never done a 10k until yesterday. When I decided to do a 10k this year I looked for a race that was close in driving distance,gave out medals at the end and was held on day that I had off. After a little bit of looking I found a race that fit all of my requirements, the SV 10k . The day before the race my mom and I went and picked up our race numbers. I had done a race in the same area before and it started near the park where we picked up our numbers so I thought that’s where this race was going to begin well I was wrong. It was ending at the park I was so confused when we got there but we just followed everyone else and made it to the start on time. Our plan was to walk most of the way and that’s what we did but we also did some short jogging bursts and that helped to improve our time . We were thinking that it would take us around two hours but because of our little jogging bursts we finished in one hour and forty three minutes ! The race course was pretty awesome we went past some pretty gardens and there were dogs and the beginning of the race ! I was so happy to cross off another item off my list and I love the medal that they gave out at the end ! It was a fun morning and I’m so glad I got to participate in it !
