FootZone 5K, August 6, 2006 – Redmond Town Center

(I know it is a stretch to consider running a 5K Hiking, but until I create a Running category this is the best fit.)

I participated in the FootZone 5K this past August 6, 2006. It was my first 5K, and the first time I can remember “running for fun”. Though contrary to all of my previous beliefs, it actually was fun.

My goal was simply to finish the 5K without walking. I was able to accomplish that and ended with a time that isn’t half-bad (as I’ve been told by friends that have done 5Ks before). I ended up with a total time of 25m 43s, average mile time of 8m 18s. Results have been posted here (so you can verify I actually did participate and did in fact get the times I’ve listed).

My friends Derek and Shanna were there and Derek took a couple pictures throughout the event. His entire photo album is for the event is here, but there were a couple pictures with me in them, so I thought I would put them on my site as well.

First, is a picture at the start of the race. Someday I might actually highlight who I am, but I think if you look in the middle of the picture, you should be able to see the side/back of my head. And second, is a picture from the end of the race. Both Shanna and I are a little sweaty, but it felt remarkably satisfying to finish.
