At the Races

Cherry Blossom 10K

As I woke up on Sunday morning, it seemed that the westher for this year’s race was averaging out with the weather from last year’s race to produce some pretty fine weather conditions: it was incredibly hot at last year’s race, so at this year it was cold and blustery.

Luckily, the sun came out and warmed us up a bit by the start, although the winds didn’t die down too much.  The first half of the race featured a stiff headwind.

This was my first race of the year.  I was hoping to be a bit faster than last year, although a bit unsure of what I’d manage since I’ve taken to running laps inside of my office building in lieu of some of the higher quality workouts I’ve done in the past.

Overall, I was very satisfied with my result.  My four-and a half year-old son, though, was a bit disappointed when I refused to run with the shopping cart in the parking lot of Costco later on in the afternoon like I usually do..

Here are a few results I saw.  Apologies if I missed anyone.
