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.
