Wrigley River Run 2017

I was asked by my brother (@congruns) if I wanted to participate in the Wrigley River Run in Long Beach last month. I’ve been running more but have never done any organized run other than 2 Warrior Dash runs which aren’t timed. I’ve been wanted to try and see how I’d do so I gave it a shot. It was a 5K run with great overcast weather and it wasn’t too hot with low 70s temps.

I ended up finishing the 5K with a time of 26:27, 78th overall and 2nd in my age group. This was a fun event and I’m glad to have been invited to participate.

I’m signed up to do a Father’s Day Run in Van Nuys  on June 18th. Weather is supposed to a hot high 80s/low 90s so we’ll see how it effects how I feel during the run.
