Race Recap: UAEHK10K

11:17 AM KyannaSimone 0 Comments

The UAE Healthy Kidney 10K is a race I think I will run for awhile, it’s easy, but too easy where you feel like you’re wasting your time. However, a loop around Central Park is a course not to be taken lightly. One word, hills. So I suggest if you ever plan on doing this race, or any race in Central Park, practice those hills.

This race is usually conducted the last week of May and after the Brooklyn Half, this year it was two weeks before the end of the month and a week before the Brooklyn half, all of this to say I was surprised that the weather was so nice and on the verge of summer weather, so needless to say, I was very hot.

I had a goal coming into this race and trying to PR my time from last year of 1:24:45. I knew that I didn’t have a good NYC Half time but I also wanted to push myself to see what I can do and also keeping in mind that I hadn’t run a mile since the NYC Half.

After all was ran and done, I came in at 1:26:09. Not too bad if I do say so myself. I was sure that I was going to run this race in 1:40:00, only because the NYC half was so hard for me and I basically was running with no training what so ever. I was ready to accept anytime I was putting out.


(Me and my GF) 

It’s the midst of race season, so I’m more than happy to get myself back into running and actually start training, especially with the marathon coming up in November. I’m actively looking for a running coach and training plan, which I’ve found someone who might work for me, but I’m still looking around before the month ends. I will totally keep you guys posted on my training.

Until next time beauties.
