Man-O-Man what a fun day at the U of U Homecoming Scholarship 5K. The day started early when my good friend Troy picked me up and taxied me to the "U". We got there earlier enough to get our bib numbers and goodie packets and take care of the preliminary business before the race started. It was announced that there were 800+ runners for this years 5K. I grabbed Troy and drug him to the front of the mob and showed him how the Theory of Relativity works. (That is line up in front and run like hell and you'll probably finish in front of all the other old guys in your AG) 

The race started at almost promptly 8:30am and it was off in a blinding flash, all the really fast people were out of sight in no time flat. So I jumped in and started chasing the pack like a slobbering dog chasing a soup bone.

The first 1.7 miles were somewhat up hill through the campus and then it flattened out for about a half mile, and again changed to a pretty good downhill running course past the stadium and back to the Law Library to the start/finish line. From the beginning of the race I tried to keep upping my speed but I was still feeling a bit sluggish from the Full Monte two weekends ago, so I just settled with keeping my feet happy and moving and not letting any old men pass me!

At the finish line I checked my time and found that I had run a 23:51:51/at 7:40 per mile. I was estatic because I knew that I had to run something in the 23 minute zone. Troy finished in 26:26:02 for a 6th place in his AG.

At the awards ceremony I was one of the first called out and given an award for being the Best Dressed runner, I was just wearing my regular Red, White and Blues from head to toe. As time went on I got called up again for my 1st place prize for for beating the other 3 old guys in my AG(65-69).

OK, that's all she wrote, short race and a short report. Chow-Boing!
