Fredericksburg Wildflower 10K 2010

Yesterday, a few friends and I had the opportunity to run in the Wildflower 10K in beautiful Fredericksburg, Texas.

Fredericksburg is a bit weird in a way that it’s this little bed and breakfast community in Texas with a German flair. German immigrants left their mark permanently on the city via all the beer gardens and the Texas German language. Anyways, the weather was near perfect and the blue skies definitely helped the mood…

My goal was to finish the 10K in sub 40 minutes but I fell slightly short of that goal. I started the race a bit slow to give my knee a bit of a break but I ended up finishing in about 42 minutes averaging a 6:45/mile pace with zero knee pain. It was nice to learn that I ended up winning my age group with a time like that, woooo!

All in all, well organized race and I’m happy my knee is back to normal.
