10k Registration

I'm now officially registered for my first 10k!

It's a week from Saturday. I'll be running 10k tomorrow, Tuesday, and Thursday on my normal midweek runs, and my goals will now be twofold for each:

* Run negative splits (not those positive ones, as Marcy calls them, hehe
* Run ~9 min/mi the first half and 8:15 - 8:30 mile splits the second half

I'm excited about it. I would love to do a Thanksgiving turkey trot (there are several), but my mother-in-law wouldn't be too happy about not being at her house early. So I'm glad this one's the Saturday before. So now I have a birthday run (my birthday being the Monday following).

I also registered all three kidlets for the fun runs. Gregory (6) will run a mile, Jenny (4) will run 1/4 mile, and Joy (3) will do 200 meters. Mom refuses to run, hehe. It's going to be a fun day!
