I’m an occasional runner. I sometimes run around where I live. I did Color Run twice (Chiba and Seattle) and I will be in Seattle’s one this year as well. However I hadn’t ran a serious “race”… So I finally did it!
I ran for Hot Chocolate 15k/5k with my wife today. I ran from Seattle Center to Pike Place Market, from the market to Fremont, and from there to back to Seattle Center. It was harder than I thought. Seattle has a lot of hills, it was raining, and 15km was way too long for me. The record wasn’t so impressive probably, but again, that was my first serious race!
I’d like to run a full marathon someday, but I do need more practice even before doing a half marathon.
