Abe's Amble, that is. I walked more than I ran, and the results show it. 1:47:46 was my official time. I had an average pace of 17:23. I was expecting a 2-hour even time based on my times around the neighborhood, so I did better than I expected. So, can I run a 10k? Kind of. Am I better off running a 5k? Most likely. So, that's what I'm going to shoot for from now on. I need to cut a lot of time off of my pace, so that's the next part.
I doubt I'll ever really enjoy running, but at least I now have a baseline to use for future measurements of progress. I got a lot of good data out of this race.
Next time, though, I'll run the 2-mile at the beginning of the fair. This 10k stuff is crazy for a weekend athlete-type.
