Lost my mind now I am running a 10k

So I saw the word beer linked to a run and signed up for my first 10k.  The San Diego Beer run 10k.  Its on August 23rd so plenty of time to get ready, I think.  Need to find a training program.  I looked around and can’t really seem to find much.  Most plans are either 5k or half marathon training plans.  I also decided to sign up for my first half marathon in November.  I’m just going to start training for that and run the 10k as part of the training for the half marathon. The 10k benefits a local school and there is beer so this is the definition of win-win.

I mean there is a run that I was probably going to do anyways with beer at the end, that I was going to drink anyway.  So yeah this sounds like a good fit.  I don’t just race for the beer, but… It is a huge reason I started running again.  I mean beer  is not necessarily the best running fuel, but it has carbs. So yeah, beer and running.  Now if only it isn’t too hot and is well laid out and and and.

What could possibly go wrong?

About the Author:

I have gone up and down in weight over my life. I ran cross-country in high school, but that was 25 years ago. I was up to 245lbs at 5'6" tall, not good. I have tried all different styles of eating, from vegan to low-carb. After really seeing how out of shape I was, I decided to get in shape. A year later, I have been running at least 3 days a week and am getting ready for my first marathon. As a fat runner, I'm not fast, I'm not going to win, but I will finish.
