Okay it was my first 10k too but this was big for him because this was his first long run.
I was doing social media for a company who put on various runs in the Nashville area and because of this, we got to run it for free.
I had just done the 1/2 in Tempe 6 days before so I really wasn't wanting to run anything this was something we could do together.
So we did..and Jon did awesome!!! He ended up having an average of 11.61mins per mile which is amazing for someone who has never gone that far or that fast before!
I didn't do as good but the important thing is I finished right? My knee buckled out on mile 5 and slowed me down a lot which isn't really a big deal since I'm already so slow to begin with. But I finished in just under 15min miles.
Oh well.. it was fun to do it together and to have him there when I finish.
