I ran in The Giant Race yesterday in San Francisco. My 10K time, while not great (in my opinion) landed me 17th out of 274 runners in my age group; F 50-54. I have about 2 weeks of consistent, but light, training under my belt since coming back from vacation so I didn’t expect quick feet and had to push the last 3 miles.
There are a lot of people that do this race; runners and walkers alike. As we were in our car driving past the final turn into AT&T Park we cheered on many of the 10K walkers still cruising to the finish line. And I love that.
Races these days are so inclusive and welcoming. Whether you walk or run, there’s a place for you at the starting line.
Now go run!
