First 10-Miles

Today is the Superbowl and somehow that inspired me to run 10 miles.  I set the treadmill to 5.3 MPH which is pretty well the slowest speed that I still consider jogging and set off.  The first hour was unremarkable and passed by watching an episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and then by watching short videos on tips and tricks in multivariate calculus.  I was still moving at a fair clip until about mile 8 when I ran out of videos and started listening to music.  At mile 9.64 I had a side stitch and, refusing to stop, did a will-powered turbo-hop for the last 1/3rd of a mile.  My knees felt weak and I looked somewhat drunk while walking even after showering.  My housemate was having a Superbowl party with two score dishes so I decided to celebrate my victory with…. a Caesar salad.
