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.
