2008 Race for Pace 5K

Well, I didn’t finish the Race for Pace in under 25 minutes, as I’d hoped. Still, I can’t be too disappointed. Running on a very hilly course just one week after running a grueling half marathon, I finished in 25:20. Not bad.

It was the best of races. It was the worst of races. On September 28, I ran a PR in the Great Race, finishing in 50:49. That’s more than 3 minutes faster than last year’s 53:56. The only way I could have been happier is if I’d broken 50 minutes. The Chamber Classic half marathon […]

BTW, that was a bad idea; don’t emulate me. Anyhow, I finished without walking (not counting water stops) in 2:19:50. I’m still […]
