The Double 10K

*I'm too tired to re-read this post to edit it so please forgive me for any mistakes. I had a slight change in my plan this morning. After thinking things through I decided that I would drive to the race site instead of running from my place to the race site. Silly me forgot to think about how I would get back from the race and I had a feeling that I would not to want to run another 10K after two 10K's. I woke up at 530 and had my coffee as I looked over the course map on the computer. I am very fortunate for where I live because almost every running race is in my area of Mandarin.

That would just make my day! Tomorrow I will be running the Mandarin 10K after I run a 10K. I figured I would try to run a race on tired legs to see how it will feel on Thanksgiving when I try to break my PR of 1:39. And the other reason why I am running to the race (6 miles to the race start from my house) is because the Native Sun is putting on the race and after 12 miles of running and racing, I am going to fully enjoy the all-natural/organic buffet of food. YUMMM!!! I can't see myself running 6 miles afte
