Run to Remember 5k 2005

Hooray! Another personal record! This morning, we ran the Run to Remember 5k in downtown Baltimore. This was a huge race, 1200 people signed up. It started on Fayette Street downtown in front of police headquarters. There were a ton of police and firemen running, in rememberance of 9/11. Right at the starting line, there were two firetrucks with their ladders up in cross-cross fashion over the street, making an arch. There was a big American Flag flying from the arch. It was very cool looking.

I ran the first two miles. It was rough going, my feet were heavy like lead for some unknown reason. At the World Trade Center on Pratt Street, there was a man playing bagpipes. Very cool. In general, there was not a lot to report on. Water came very late in the course, not until the end of mile 2. Mile 2 started hills, we had to run up Federal Hill. I walked up the first hill, but I ran up the last one that ended in Federal Hill park.

Mile 1 - 11:06
Mile 2 - 23:06

Yay! Final offical time for me was 37:35, which is just barely over a 12-minute mile. I'm forever improving. Plus, at the finish line were Krispy Kremes! :)

Edited to add: Race Results!
