They ran a HOT practice 10K back in mid-May, just to see what it was like to tackle the distance on their favorite new local trail. They showed up ... together ... and they finished ... together.
After three months of running together, the ladies finished their 10K event at Sun Prairie's Strawberry Festival two weeks ago. They each finished at their own pace on a very sparse 10K course (most participants competed in the 5K). But they didn't care. Because like I always tell them, they were doing it for themselves ...not anyone else. This is their journey. And, again they came back out to finish with the last runner and help her cross that finish line. Who says that running is an "individual sport"??
