Race Report:

I actually ran this race injured; I was feeling knee pain for a while, but I began to feel better before the race. Once the race began, however, I started feeling pain within the first mile. Of course, I know that you aren't supposed to keep running when you feel pain, but honestly, we all know how hard it is to stop once the race starts.

As the race went on the pain kept getting worse; I actually spent most of my energy holding back tears, but I managed to finish with the support of my dad running along side me.

As soon as I crossed the finish line and the adrenaline rush disappeared, the true extent of the pain hit me; I couldn't walk without severely limping, and I couldn't bend my left knee.

But hey, I'm all better now, thanks to physical therapy, and I have to admit that I am proud of finishing a very painful 10K under an hour.
