DSC05588 - CopyRonny and I have been training for an upcoming 10K that we are planning to run – the St. Pat’s Road Race in Manhattan, KS. I ran it last year with Shelley and really enjoyed it. Probably because the course runs through one of my favorite place on earth – Kansas State University!

This year, Ronny is going to run it with me after he has picked up a liking to racing with the BoulderBOULDER race last year. Shelley will be there again, and Patricia and Melissa plan to run as well!

I’m glad that I have my Garmin Forerunner 210 watch to help me work on my pace, breathing and heart rate. And I’ve had some fun with it – taking it along on all my travels so if I can squeeze a run in, I have the information saved where I ran!

Here are a few of my courses:

Charleston, SC - this was the easiest 3.22  miles ever because it is SO beautiful there!
Charleston run

Charlotte, NC – I did not like downtown Charlotte. It was hard to run in with all of the big streets and there was too much construction going on. But some different sites nonetheless.
Charlotte run

Kearney – has the best trail, park and pond that is right by the conference center where a majority of my conferences are. I love getting a chance to run on this trail – especially when it is nice out in February!
Kearney run

Seward – The weather has been so nice, so I’ve gotten some good runs in around town.

Now, I just need to reach that 6 mile  mark!

You are so inspiring. I wish I had the desire to run! Keep it up.

Thanks, Lori! I'm trying to keep my desire up - some days it's challenging. :) Thanks for the support.

Good job! Wish I was running the 10k too, but next year! I'll be rocking the 2 mile walk. :) And this way I can stalk you and take pictures of you while you run, haha!
