On Saturday, October 27th, 2007 I ran in a 10K race. I have been running the past seven weeks, three times per week a minimum of 20 minutes- usually between 30 to 45 minutes. My goal was to finish the 10Km (6.2 miles) in less than 60 minutes, and I achieved my goal; I finished in 58 minutes and 5 seconds.
The race was a fundraiser for a local orphanage where some of our students volunteer. It was called the monster minithon and there was a 1/2Km kids race, a 3Km walk, a 5Km run and a 10Km run. In total there were about 100 participants, a real success! I was dressed as the road runner from looney tunes cartoons! However, I did not wear my real feathers as it was raining. I will save them for the real halloween party that we will host for the ACS Faculty on the 31st.
