6k Run - Setting a Personal Record

On Saturday morning I ran a 6k with Katie. Having never run a 6k (because it's not a typical distance for a race), we knew that no matter our finishing time, we'd be setting prs for ourselves.

It was a woman-only race, which I've never done before. We ended up coming in at 46:19:09 and 46:20:01, averaging a little quicker than 12 and a half minute miles.

My major accomplishment - I ran the whole way. I've never done that before. It was fabulous and I felt amazing. Weighing in at about 15 lbs lighter than when I ran my half and closer yo 20 lbs lighter than when I ran my full was wonderful too.

WW tally - 28.6 lbs gone... and counting...

Awesome! Congrats on the weight loss, running and everything in between. And yeah, that is a weird distance, but glad you all had a great time.

Awesome, Eddie. None of that is easy stuff, and you're doing/diding it! (I just made up the word diding. I can do that, you know.)
