Isabella Santos Foundation 5k/10k race recap

On Saturday morning I ran in the 5k 10k Race for Kids Cancer presented by the Isabella Santos Foundation.  It was my last long run before the half marathon on October 3rd so I wasn't really expecting to "race" it.  Plus it was raining ... the ENTIRE race. 

Aside from the rain, I didn't love the race course.  The 10k course was the same as the 5k course ... except doubled.  10k runners were dodging people left and right, especially since it was such a family friendly event.  Think lots of strollers, walkers, and even dogs. 

Once I finished I quickly got a bottle of water and headed back to my car.  I just wanted to get home FAST so that I could shower and warm up. 

Not every race is going to be a PR or the best race ever.  Weather on race days can be so fickle; I'm proud of myself for even going out there and running with the rain.  Bonus was not falling down and hurting myself!

  • I placed 39th out of 255 10k finishers (males and females)       
  • I placed 11th out of 154 female finishers
  • I placed 5th in my age group (30-39 years old) out of 67 finishers
  • time 49:02 minutes, 7:53/mile
