This is it! The most awaited first 15k run. I made sure that I sleep early but maybe due to excitement, I didn’t sleep well… again! This has been a problem ever since.
Though the race started late but the weather cooperated. To top it off, running inside a cemetery is a different experience. The killer hills of McKinley challenged one’s stamina and endurance. At this point, I could still remember Sensei John saying, “Just let your feet roll and push yourself.” It helped.
This was one of the most organized races I’ve ever been.
Congratulations to all who participated in this run!
