It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.
5k Race today. 25:56 not bad for my current conditioning but way off a PR.
10 thousand racers. Rod Carew, Reggie Jackson, Tim Salmon, Bobby Grich and Jillian Michaels gave speeches about raising money for Cancer Research.
Off to World Cup Party.
On the road back
Now I'm thinking about going out later this evening to get the other 2.7 I need to reach 40. Of course, it is awfully hot. I'm SO ready for September.
I have a love/hate relationship with running. I do it, but sometimes I love to hate it.
Murphy, you're doing GREAT. I'm so happy for you. BtW that is an amazing 5K time. Great job. Keep up the good work. I'm excited for you.
Cash, Nice 5K time! I would think those would be great for TRI training, and cheaper than a TRI too.
Paul, those conditions just suck and you were up early too. Great job for making the best of it.
What do you guys usually pay for a local 5K? For me it is typically $15. I might spend $20. I won't do the $25 ones... not for 5K. In cities they are much more, but not going to drive 100 miles for a 5K. (I did hop a ride for a one mile race once, won't do that again.)
12 miles SLOW and felt good, ended feeling great. Got tons done at home. Was humid a bit, but was much worse for RP that decided to sleep in and run later.
30 dollars for this race plus another 3 or 4 to active.com. And that was for early registration. Normal registration was 40 dollars plus the fee from Active. About normal pricing for here. Big ole chunk of Iron for the medal. Yes this 5k had a medal and a cotton/tech shirt.
Cant sign up for most races without going through Active.com here, which sucks. I dont like them. Can't tell if I am confirmed for the race until I go down to pick up the race bib.
Most 5k races here dont have medals. This medal was bigger than most of my marathon medals.
But permits from the city, plus paying for Police overtime plus money to cancer research charities.
