Statesman Capitol 10K 2010

This morning I had the opportunity (along with 20,000+ others) to run the Statesman Capitol 10K. It was a bit rainy in the morning so it wasn’t ideal running conditions but at least it wasn’t pouring…

I was running easy 6:40 splits until the last couple miles where a cramp started to eat away at me but I managed to finish in about 43 minutes. Overall I felt good and I’m confident my knee is just about fully recovered so I’ll be good for the San Diego Rock n’ Roll Half Marathon. On a side note, I was so close to getting the mark of the beast for my race number…

There’s always next time 🙂

    That's the neighbour of the beast, dude. 🙂

  • May be the race organizers should auction the race numbers. This way they can raise more money for the charity (if its that kind of event) and runners get to run with their favorite number!

  • That's an interesting concept. Usually the goal is to get a lower race number as that generally signifies what group you get put into. The lower your number the further ahead you get to start so you don't get stuck behind the crowds 🙂
