I did it! I finished the GumTree 10k. I tried to enlist Cullen's dad to run it, but he was injured. I tried to enlist Cullen, but his back randomly started hurting. So I finished I ran/walked it by myself.
Cullen's mom and dad volunteered to watch Jett and they had a big time in Fairpark, while I was making my way through tornado ravaged Tupelo. My goal was to have a sub 12 minute mile. I wound up running sub 11 minute mile, so I was pleased.
What I know after my first 10k. It was long in comparison to the 5ks I am used to. I am super glad I did it, I can't wait until next year. Maybe I can get a partner to finish it with me.
