Save a Sister 10k

Stats: Overall time was 46:53, 6th place overall men’s division.

We were in St. George with some friends and I found this Runner’s Series race in St. George.  Looking forward to doing the St. George marathon in 2012 so I need to get a few “series” races in so that I can get a guaranteed entry into the marathon.

This was a fairly small race but was very well organized, great support and the post-race food and awards were very well done.  As it was a fund-raiser and awareness race for breast cancer they did a fun “balloon launch” just minutes before the start.

I hadn’t really trained specifically for this race but I was fairly happy with my time.  It was  a general gun start (no timing chips) so I SHOULD have made my way to the front of the pack for the start… as it stood I crossed the start-line at about 30 seconds… in hind-sight this could have made a HUGE difference as a 30 second faster time would have put me 4th overall rather than 6th.

My only complaint about this race, and it’s a small one, is that the shirts were not very comfortable and were definitely designed for women rather than a unisex-type design.  Of course, it is a breast cancer awareness and fund-raiser run so it’s not that big of a deal.  I guess my wife will get a free shirt :)
