Vineyard Run for Hope 2010

On Nov 20, 2010, I ran back to back 5K and 10K in Braselton to raise money for Gwinett Children’s Shelter. Matt Semrad came too. He was blazing fast and came 2nd overall and got the Masters Champion trophy for the 5K. However, he pulled his hamstring in the 10K and had to pull over. Todd joined us for the 10K was very strong. Also ran into Erica from office in the 5K run. She did a strong sub-30.

For the 5K race, I did 26:30 which was nowhere near my best but I did conserve enough energy to post a PR for the 10K after that at 53:30. Ironically, I got a 3rd place trophy for my age group!! I was 37th overall in a field of 350 runners. For the 10K, I was 54th or so among 180 runners.
