Historic 10k

Date – Sunday, November 30

OMG Productions Historic 10k
Twas a clear morning, ripple-free water and clear morning sky-blue sky.

Distance – 10k

Time – 59.43 minutes

Place – 88th overall. 15th in my age group. If I had the results from the Turkey Trot I would have placed in the top 5 for my age group

Start/Finish Location – Stanley Park Pavilion by Malkin Bowl

 

Charity – The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

Notes  –  I originally registered for the half marathon but downgraded to the 10k because I didn’t feel trained up nor was I interested in gambling with the weather; a half marathon in the IMG_0763rain is miserable.

It was clear, but cold and icy. I ran slower. The route was a there-and-back-again on the east side of Stanley Park’s seawall and seemed shorter for that reason. I had lots of energy at the end.

Next year I’d prefer to register for the Fall Classic and experience a different route. I’m getting a bit bored of the seawall.

Ambulance Called

There was ambulance incident along the route and someone was getting chest compressions (yikes). It looked like a heavy-set woman but a bystander said it was a man. It was not confirmed if the person was a runner or not.

Maybe the next charity should be the heart and stroke foundation.
