    The 10k has become my race! I did the TC10K a couple of years ago after doing a half in September, and fell in love. The chance to be speedy while still employing some of that strategy you pick up from training for longer distances is perfect for me.

      That’s great to hear Bethany! You said it well – speed and endurance!

    The 10K race is my favorite distance. I have ran three 10K races in the last 4 weeks (Brooksie Way 10K in Michigan, TC 10K and the Mankato 10K yesterday) and have one this Sunday at the Marine Corps Marathon in DC. I love the distance because I don’t feel like I have to kill myself by running fast like the 5K and the half marathon distance still scares me. And I agree with you 100%, the 5K is too short and the Half takes up half of my day.

      Good luck on Sunday! Hope it is the best yet.

    10k is my preferred distance too. It’s short enough to still push the speed somewhat (relatively) but not as demanding as 10 mi. or half. And it’s fun going by the 5k walkers in a combined event.

      So true Dale! Any on the calendar?

  • Missie Jacobson

    I love 10k. I did 2 this year. It also taught me I can’t just go run like the 5k. If a race has that option I will for sure being doing that instead of 5k. Since 5k is getting boring.
    10 miles is my favorite distance!

    • frenat

      10 miles is a fun distance! Relatively easy to complete on a weekend. There should be more of them!

        I wish there was more. In fact when I first started running 2 years ago it was that distance that made me just go out and run alone 1 day. Now I find it weird how I can take weeks off and go run 10 whenever I want.
        Already looking forward to TC10 next year 😉
