6K race

Today I ran a 6K race put on by KFC. The $2.50 entrance fee went to sponsor children with cancer.

It was a point to point race. From one KFC to another. My house is conveniently situated between the two. I thought about walking/running to the starting line, but found that the busses were running at 6:00 in the morning and happily paid the 50 cents to take a short ride.

There were a bit over 200 people there (just a guess). From what I could ascertain, there were 70 people in my age group. I placed 37 out of the group with a time of 33:14. The distance was 6.2K.

After walking around for about 20 minutes, I started my run home. Where the race was run at 8:37 per minute, my run home was 11:34 per minute. It was less than 1.5 miles.

  1. I don’t know if they provided food after the race or not. Certainly not immediately after. They were set up at the second KFC for a big party day. They had carnival type games set up in the parking lot with lots of chairs for people to hang around for the raffle and awards.

    I always leave before the awards ceremony since I have to get cleaned up for church (not good for the pastor to miss because he was waiting for the awards ceremony). But I think some of the events go on for several hours after the race. They may have had a meal provided by KFC later in the morning.

    This was in Mexico.
