Running of the Bulls 5K

This race, www.bulls5k.com, through downtown Palo Alto promised the presence of several Olympians that acted as "bulls" and "cows". It was a very competitive field with what seemed to be just about all of the Peninsula and South Bay faster short distance runners. There were gold medals for the first twenty five men and women who beat the first cow and silver medals for the next 50 finisher men and women.

I was feeling pretty tired at the start. We lined up outside up Peers Park and did a loop through the neighborhood. I turned the first mile in 6:15. I did the second mile at 13 minutes. I didn't see the third mile sign and I'm guessing I hit it at 19:30. I finished at 20:13. A bit disappointing as I'd been doing mostly sub 20 minute 5ks on the flats lately.

I definitely don't have all the answers, but I know that as long as people keep sharing ideas like this, the truth will eventually reveal itself and maybe it can make a difference somewhere.

I think this blog rocks! Keep up the good work, I've bookmarked it and will definitely swing by again soon.

Feel free to pay a visit to my Canada immigration site. It might not be your "cup of tea", but it covers Canada immigration related topics.
