The Redondo Beach 10K was the first 10K that i’ve ran since the Santa Monica 10K in 2010 and it was a rough one. This race was particularly fun because Joy and I were able to meet up with Eric from LVI at the beginning of the race, and bumped into Tony in the middle of the run.
I had one month to train for the race, and i was on a really good training schedule up until last weekend when i pulled my hamstring, quad, and calf on on my right leg. So this past week i hadn’t been able to run. Things were going smoothly for the first 3 miles, but as we hit the ocean at mile 4 both knees started acting up, and by mile 5 i had a slight limp to my run. Yet somehow i managed not to stop running and powered up the last hill and through the finish line to still beat my previous mark of 1:03:40.
There were no medals given out for this event but we were given two free beers for finishing and afterwards went out to Casa Arigato for breakfast afterwards.
