My first official race since my injury.  I ran to support a friend who was running her first race ever.  She claimed she could only run 11 minute miles so I thought this would be a “safe” race for me.  She then proceeded to go all crazy on me.  Some portions we were at 8:30 pace and I was Okaaaaayyyy  let’s slow it down.   Ankle is a little sore now, but it was great fun overall.  And a great cause.  This course has some challenging hills but finishes on a nice half mile flat straightaway.

It benefits the Jordan Boys & Girls Club and the Chelsea Police Relief Association and the police all ran as a group.  It was really cool to see them run in formation and you could hear them chanting in unison no matter where you were on the course.  It looks to me that they ran as slow as their slowest runner as a way to show solidarity, and it worked.

Official bib time on this was 29:51, which is a 9:37 pace.   I really held my friend back and I think I asked her to slow down half a dozen times.  She later went on to run her first 10K with a great time and I think we may be looking at a new person hooked on running!
