first 10 miler ever…

In 2007, a friend asked me if I was interested in running a half marathon.  I thought about it and said sure, why not?  Not knowing this was going to be the first of many. 🙂

But any whoo, during the training, she came across the Park Forest Scenic 10 mile and 5K race that fit right into our training schedule.  I finished my run in 1:59:22.  And here is the medal that I got.

Park Forest Scenic 10 Miler

I don’t think this race exists anymore.  Sad because it was a really nice route.  The run took you through a forest preserve and parts of Park Forest.  I did find that 2007 was the last year they did the 10 miler.  The next couple of years it was a 5 mile race and it looks like no more.
