This is a belated race recap for a 10K I did November 9, 2013, at a time when I thought I was going to do a half marathon in early December. The most I had run by this time in the past month was only 7 miles, and I thought I’d try to do the 10K and keep going up from there. I didn’t end up doing a half marathon in December, but I just did one yesterday, so I can write this recap now not feeling too much of a failure.
This was a really great race that I enjoyed thoroughly. The race benefited a local school in Shreveport, but the selling point for me was that an entry came with a piece of Strawn’s pie afterwards. They are famous for their pie, and so I circled this on my calendar last summer when I first heard of it.
I got my husband to come run with me, as he too likes pie. He took this photo of me before the race started:
When we finished, we got pieces of strawberry pie and they also had Starbucks coffee and sweetener and creamer! It was my dream come true!
We sat down on the curb to eat, and after that, headed home.
