I’m excited to have announce that I’m teaming up with the Newport 10k as an official blog partner!
I had to look back at my records to find the last 10k I ran and I realized it’s been years! Both the 5k and 10k intimidate me a bit with the faster paces that you have to hold onto. I make myself do some 5ks because, well, they’re over faster.
But the 10k is an awesome distance and I had promised myself I’d do a few in 2017. So I was excited when Newport reached out about running their race on Saturday, May 6th.
It’s flat and fast, and if you’re anywhere near NYC, it’s a must! It runs along the Hudson River Waterfront Parkway with some amazing views of the NYC skyline.
I loved running the half here in the fall and am excited to head back for a shorter race. As it gets closer, I’ll share some 10k specific training tips and my own race experience afterwards, of course.
When’s the last time you’ve run a 10k? Do you have one on your 2017 calendar?
Is anyone else signed up for the Newport 10k or considering it? I’d love to meet up before or after!
