Greek Festival 10K

It had been a long time since I ran a 10K road race, so I was curious to see how I'd fare. The Greek Festival 10K had some pretty sweet prize drawings, so I decided to give it a go. (didn't end up winning any though) Nicole, from work, ran the 5K with a friend. It was fun to have someone cheering for me at the end.

Not a big turnout for the 10K. There were only 33 guys and 28 ladies. I ran an ok race, which on that day happened to be good enough to place 7th overall, 6th out of the men, and 1st in my age group. I edged out the 2nd place guy by 2 seconds with my kick to the finish. Sorry Travis. My time was 44:17 (7:07 min/mile)

Start and finish at The Gateway
