Wednesday I learned that there was to be a 6 Km race this morning. The paperwork said that it was an approximate distance. Actual distance ended up being 5.74 Km, or 3.56 miles.
I ran it in 29:48. That is a pace of 8:23 per mile.
I had fun. One of our church people told me about the race since it was her company that was sponsoring it. She and her daughter were at the race as well. The daughter took 3rd in her age group. Yes, there were only 3. She was not the very last person to finish, but the last person was only a few steps behind her. Since she knew she would take 3rd place just by finishing, she stuck it out and finished.
I took 5th place in my division. There were 8 of us. I am not sure what the overall number of runners was.
I ended up this running week with 32.2 miles. That is my longest number of miles in a single week. Like last week, I ran 4 days in a row. That was not planned, but when I learned of the race it was too late to avoid the multiple running days. I will take tomorrow off.
One thought on “Almost a 6 Km race”
The Peaches are at the races! Congratulations to the both of you!
