5K results are online! September 19, 2006

Well, the results have been posted for the American Heart Association’s 2006 Mercer County 5K Heart Run.

I finished in 56th place overall (out of 109 runners) with a time of 27 minutes, 54 seconds.

What these results also show is that I finished 12th out of 16 males between the ages of 30 and 39, which sucks. But at least I didn’t come in last within my gender-age group.

Anyway, I’m going to try to do four or five 5K runs a year from now on…probably two or three from March-May and two or three in September and October. I’ll keep June-August open for cycling.
