    wow! congratulations!! I was just telling Wile on the accountability thread that a 10k is a great starting place to head into a half marathon. C'mon over there and chat with us, this was my first year of half marathons and I enjoyed it so much I did 3 of them and a 25k! I never thought I'd be running half marathons, but it's such a great distance and the races are so much fun!

    Hey, I was there, too! Didn't you see me? (LOL-- 8,500 runners, probably not!)

    Isn't that a great event? So inspiring. And I still remember how excited I was the first time I ran it. CONGRATULATIONS! This will be the beginning of great things for you. :toothy8:

    Post if you're planning to run next year -- maybe we can have a curly meetup/stretching session.....

    Wurly and proud!

    Fantastic!! I'm hoping to be good enough to run a 10k in the spring.... right now I'm still in 5k zone.
    "And politically correct is the worst term, not just because it’s dismissive, but because it narrows down the whole social justice spectrum to this idea that it’s about being polite instead of about dismantling the oppressive social structure of power.
    Fun Fact: When you actively avoid being “PC,” you’re not being forward-thinking or unique. You’re buying into systems of oppression that have existed since before you were even born, and you’re keeping those systems in place."

    Fantastic!! I'm so happy for you!

    I'm currently working my way up to 10k. My first race will be in mid-January.
