parking brake concern, accidentally drove about 10 feet with it set

I drove with the parking brake on, the car eventually displayed a huge warning on the dash that my parking brake was on, this was about after 10 feet of driving. do you think any damage happened? the brakes seemed normal after that, so I don't think the brakes warped or anything, I'm just worried my parking brake may have gotten stretched, what are the odds ?

No don't worry about it. 10 feet of driving with the E-brake on won't hurt a thing. Now if you had driven a few miles at highway speeds with it on then there's the potential to warp the rotors and glaze the pads.
