Just got back from running the SantaRidge Run. It was a pretty tough course due to the many hills and bumpy streets. I ran decently well throughout the race and ended up running a 23:30 race which is close to a PR for me. However, what was more important to me today was family and friends. I am really enjoying my time at the races because I have family and friends near me. Having important people in your life encouraging you before the race and reflecting afterwards is priceless. I thought about how important these days are right now for me and my family. I must admit these are good times and I do hope that I continue to recognize this and to never take these times for granted.
Here are the stats…. I was 57 out of 184 men who ran the race. I was 9 out of 24 men my age. My offical chip time was 23:33.
FYI..Brenda…was 80 out of 164 women who ran the race. She was 10 out of 26 women her age. Official chip time was 30:29. Good job.

As you can tell, I’m having a blast at these runs. I will admit, Brenda is bookin’ it as she finishes her run. I believe that she may have set a PR (personal record). Regardless, pretty awesome finishing form. The first video, Connor snuck up on me and I couldn’t get the camera to turn on in time.
I will post or edit this entry later tonight. I wanted to get the videos up quickly.
