Meridian Barn Sour 10k

I've signed myself up for one race a month this summer, pretty much just to keep myself from getting lazy.  Can't stop running when you've got a race every 4 weeks.  Anyway, yesterday I ran the Meridian Barn Sour 10k.  This time Tyson and the girls came with me since it was located at Settler's Park in Meridian.  The girls played at the park while I ran and then met me at the finish line.
I've been training for a half marathon (yes, I have lost my mind) and so I've taken my pace down a notch during my regular runs so I was nervous about what my time would be with this race, but I ended up coming in at 57 minutes 16 seconds, which is 36 seconds slower than the Lake Lowell 10k, but I'm happy with it.  I had actually expected it to be worse so I was pretty happy when I turned the corner and saw the time clock.  Lily tried to run the last bit with me.
I made the mistake of trying out some new socks though, and it was bad.  They sat strange on my ankle and rubbed my left ankle raw, as in, my sock and new shoe were both very bloody.  I'm hoping that it heals quickly because I really can't afford to take time off from running since my half is less than 3 weeks away and I've got to get in a 12 mile training run this weekend.

My girls are so good to me though, here I am taking off my bloody shoes and socks right after the race and Charlotte is handing me a drink.
