Stanford Home Run 10K
The idea of doing one race literally right after the first one was a new one on me. I got to the starting line just after finishing the 5K. I wormed my way up to the front as I’m used to doing. But it was sort of pointless. I clocked the first three miles in about eight minutes a piece, running alongside Kelly, and feeling pretty tired the whole way. At the top of the hill as we approached the three mile mark, I felt better and started to really run at a seven minute clip. I hit the stadium at 45 minutes and finished in 46:15. The back to back races was fun, although its not clear what its really training for. The website had a separate category for “Ironman” (both races), but just six people (including Kelly as well) were in it.
