Another race, another cold day! I’m looking forward to not having to bundle up when running.
On Saturday, I took part in the Runnin’ of the Green in downtown Rochester. It’s a 5 mile (8 km) race along the Genesee River. Saturday was cold, but at least it was nice and sunny! Still, I’m looking forward to not having to bundle up when running. My Dad came out to cheer me on and hang out beforehand and afterwards — it’s always great having somebody there waiting for me at the finish line!
My knees have been bothering me a little lately, so I taped them and decided to take it a bit easier for this one. No sense doing something stupid and injuring myself!
My placement results aren’t quite as high as some of my recent races, but I’m quite pleased with my performance. Especially considering it was a longer (8 km vs 5 km) race.
I finished with a time of 41:04 (5:06/km; 8:13/mile), which put me…
- 267 of 1156 overall (top 23%)
- 26 of 71 in male 40 to 44 age group (top 37%)
