running with the bulls

I now have my first 5K race behind me, having completed the inaugural Merrill Lynch Bull Run last night in Brecksville. The attendance wasn’t that great, but I had a fun time. The course was rather challenging as it was almost all hills, and being a loop meant I got to take on both parts of the hills…the ups and the downs. I finished in 24:00 (7:45 mile avg), and only found out today when they posted the results that I won my age group (25 to 29). Now I wish I would have stuck around as I might have gotten a ribbon or something which I could have added to my collection from 8th grade track back when I was a sprinter. Overall, I finished 33rd out of 123 runners. I’m very happy with my performance and hope to do a lot more of these types of races after I get done with the marathon (just 35 days from now).
