The 10k was part of a half marathon and 10k series, benefiting Wound Warrior. As my leg was not healing after my half, I had to make the difficult decision to not run. I didn't even pick up my packet. I did go to cheer on runners since my cousin and her husband were both running it. I figured if I couldn't run it with them, I could support them. I got up early that day and drove down to Irving, where the races were delayed more than hour because we had quite the thunder storm hit right before they were going to start.
Thankfully I found some shelter, but it was still outside since no buildings were open, and it was cold. This wasn't a warm June thunderstorm. The front came through before the storm and temps dropped. I stayed through the whole thing, from storms and delays to runners actually starting, and meeting my friends at the finish line. I was still so frustrated that I had to DNS, and I haven't been able to try the 10k again. One day, I'm determined to start and complete it.
