If you are new to this site, one year ago, I weighed 325 pounds (I'm 6'4" tall), had never run or jogged and rode my bike at a very slow pace. I now weigh 285 and am obsessed with improving my running pace and looking forward to a year of new milestone achievements.
But I love a challenge. So, I am asking you to give me a goal time for this 10K. You see that I just did the practice run in 1:17. But I have heard of the advantage of race-day adrenaline, this "pancake-flat" course, etc. So, I am hoping for a slightly better time.
Please give me a time that I should shoot for and I'll report back on Sunday night as to how I did.
And for you runners out there, please let me know:
- Your time for your FIRST 10K?
- Your BEST time for a 10K?
