My first 10k race was the Cowtown in Ft. Worth, TX on February 25, 2012. I didn’t really have a set training plan, I just knew I needed to get my mileage up!I did that a little at a time, eventually getting to 7 miles before the race.
The expo was great, lots of vendors and I picked up a few goodies. The parking was easy, not too crowded. Getting out of there was a little harder since the roads were still blocked. I finished in 53 minutes, 52 seconds. Much faster than I had trained at, I think the adrenaline got to me!
I am looking forward to running the Cowtown Half marathon in 2013!
The Cowtown races benefit several charities, including the American Cancer Society and CALF (Children’s Activities for Life and Fitness).
