I haven’t been in a race since high school and even then it wasn’t longer than 200 meters. Friday night I ran in my first ever long distance race. It was at the 25th annual Braunschweig Nachtlauf and my race started at 10:15pm.
The distance was 6200 meters (3.85 miles) and it took me 39 minutes and 36 seconds. I came in 628th place. My goal was to run the race without stopping, which I was able to accomplish.
Now I am training so I will be able to run a 10K. Below are some photos of the night.
