Christmas 10K & Weekend Recap

This is a late post today – and a short one – because today is a crazy day! It started with the Christmas 10K this morning in Peachtree Corners (don’t worry, I had never heard of Peachtree Corners either). I wasn’t sure if I was ready to PR (personal record) today, but Kirk ran with me and did a great job coaching me to 1+ minute PR of 48:30 – sweet!! It was a tough course for me, lots of hills! I’m not the best uphill runner, so I’ve even prouder of my race today. Still not fast enough for an age group award, I have yet to pick one up at the 10K distance. Still need to get faster!! =) How about you – any race accomplishments to share?

After cooking this afternoon, we’re getting ready to head over to my in-laws for an early Christmas with Kirk’s side of the family. Merry Early Christmas!! Anyone else celebrating an early Christmas with family this year?
