Pizza Money and a "W" at St. Clair River Run Race Report

Posted Jul 01 2012 12:00am
 I was in Sarnia on vacation last week with the family and my Mom registered us for a 10k race (The St. Clair River Run).  I have never raced a 10k race outside an Olympic Triathlon so this was my first.  It was fun.  I didn't have any high expectations for myself because although I feel as though I am "in shape", I wouldn't consider myself to be in "speed shape".  That was proven correct as I did the exact same time as I ran in the Bluewater triathlon.  Apparently it doesn't matter if I swim and bike before a 10k  as I still end up with a 42:55.

 The course was BEAUTIFUL!  Along St. Clair River.  The volunteers were AMAZING and everything so WELL organinzed.

All in all a fantastic race.
Cheers!
