This was my first time in Sacramento for the Giants 10K.

My mom and I are both running all the Giant Races together.

Saturday morning (race day) we left Palo Alto… left the house at 3:30am. We arrived in Sacramento around 5:30 am, checked into our hotel and took a nap. We woke back up for the race at 7 am and drove to the stadium.

Once we got to the stadium we picked up our bibs, did some stretching, walked to the starting line and took off!

I wasn’t very impressed with the course of the race. Again, the 10K’s did two loops around the stadium, the final loop we ran with the 5K runner/walkers.

Since this was my first time running since Boston I was hoping to take this course nice and easy and I did. This was in no way my best 10K, I was hurting  pretty badly. I really wanted to stop and walk, but I fought through the pain and ran the course.

I finally crossed the finish line at 01:06:09.

I waited for my mom to finish, went back to the hotel, showered, took another nap before checking out, and then we made our way back home.

2 Giant races done and only 2 more to go!
