Lately, it seems that all races are 5Ks or half marathons. It’s rare that you come across a 4 or 5-miler, let alone the rare 10K. I have never raced a 10K, and would really like to do so—especially in the end of July as a kind of time trial for my half marathon training.
When I started looking at Active.com and Cool Running, it appears that 10Ks are very few and far between. I know that people usually don’t like to run longer distances in the summer, but still a few might be nice.
I have always wanted to run the Tufts 10K in Boston, and maybe I will be able to make it this year (my husband always has to work on Columbus Day ). It looks like a really fun race and I definitely want to see what my time might be for the 10K distance.
Don’t get me wrong. I love the thrill and speed of a 5K and the challenge of the half marathon, I just wish there was something in between! That would be a new challenge in and of itself. It would also be an instant PR!
Have you ever raced a 10K? Do you find that they are more rare these days?
