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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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!
