Billy Bass Run for Help

Today I ran my first 5k in 2 or three years, the Bil­ly Bass Run for Help. I’d link to the site, but the Greater Cleve­land Red Cross is doing funky stuff to their web­site. I took it easy today and ran a 26:10. Not very good, but like I said, I didn’t run too hard. At 9:00 it was already in the upper eight­ies. The course was pret­ty straight-for­ward, a big loop and a small­er one. The end of the first mile comes at the hard­est part of the course, run­ning lat­er­al­ly up the long hill that leads down to the beach. The win­ning time was 17 some­thingerother. The ubiq­ui­tous road­race free t-shirt was a bright blue.

  • Hope­ful­ly I’ll cut four min­utes from my time by Race For The Cure week­end. It shouldn’t be as hard as it sounds. I recent­ly used the Google Pedome­ter to cal­cu­late how far my routes are, so now I know how long it should be tak­ing me to run them. I might start train­ing for a marathon before the year is out.

  • I like doing the short races — 5K s are fun. And you can eat what­ev­er you want for the rest of the day.
    Sounds like you had a great day!
