    Here's your chance to flaunt race results. All results need to be either official races or GPS-verified distances if you choose not to race (sorry, I don't trust Nike+. I barely even trust official races.) They also need to be from this time forward--no previous PR's. To enter your result, cut and paste and insert your result at the appropriate distance and order of time. We'll start things off, as this is about the only time I ever see myself in 1st place.

    this thread appears to need at least one reply, and I was looking for a place to share about my upcoming race, so here's my resurrection attempt. (Actually, ER paid me to do this for him)

    I have a race this weekend, just my 2nd ever, but I'm really looking forward to it. It's called Racing Cane, which I love, and proceeds go to cane field workers/children in the Dominican Republic, including donated shoes.

    I'm particularly excited because this will be an OhioBlue family affair, the first. I'll run the 6k, my wife the 3k, and my kids the 1k. This will be my wife's first race and she's having a hard time (understatement) transitioning from treadmill to outside, but she'll be fine. I took the kids for a run last weekend and they're good to go as well and looking forward to it. They are also excited about being chip timed and getting a t-shirt and finisher band just like the grown-ups.

    Since finishing 25th/238 (3rd in Age Group) in my first race a few weeks ago, I'm feeling greedy and hoping for another medal, but mostly just want to run fast and have fun. Hopefully it will be a bright spot in a day sure to see disappointment at the hands of the Seminoles.

    I would post a time, but you are too fast for me. Does someone want to do one of these for slow people?

    Racing Cane (Orem, put on by run13) is done....I did the 6k, wife the 3k, kids the 1k.

    Finish: 28 overall/3 age group.

    didn't make my time goal but I was very close, just felt a little slow today. Still, can't complain in just my 2nd race.

    Overall the event was well done and a lot of fun. In my limited experience, Run13 puts on a good, well-organized race. I'd highly highly recommend this one for families. All the kids' races were last in the stadium so everyone could watch and cheer. My son took 2nd and very nearly won. My daughter held hands with a friend and got a side-sticker. My wife, who has had a tough time with injuries and transitioning from treadmill to outdoors, obliterated her time goal in her first ever race. Next up for our family is the BYU Homecoming Cougar Run, a 5k with kids racesin the track complex.

    My only complaint on the day is that my son's medal looks cooler than mine.

    Wow, I forgot about this thread. I think I was so psyched at my time that I wanted to brag somewhere. Kind of a weenie move in retrospect, but yes, I'm going to repeat it.

    Just finished the first Cedar Canyon Half Marathon. Set a new PR on a really fast course at 1:39.

    This was the probably the best-run event I've ever been to, and it was only the first year. I know the director pretty well. He's a very fast runner with lots of races under his belt and undiagnosed OCD, which makes a good combo for a really well-run event. My only complaint was the gun start, but he told me afterward that they were a little surprised at the number of entries, thinking that they wouldn't need chips, and by the time they decided they needed them, it was too late. They'll fix it next year. Other than that, all of the little things were covered, right down to announcing finisher's names. Add that to a really fast course down the most scenic canyon in the state (totally unbiased opinion) and you have the makings of a great event.

    Thank you. I medaled in my first as well...so I'm getting spoiled.

    Nice job yourself ER! 1:39 damn that's flyin'. I can't imagine sustaining near 7 1/2 min miles for that long, even with the downhill help. So did this thing start up by Cedar Breaks or something? Sounds good, I might have to look into it next year.

    Mrs. Jones (who doesn't lurk or post here as she has real friends) ran in the local 5K and was timed at 26:08. Not bad for someone who had a baby not too long ago.

    Now I just have to beat that time in my first 5K.

    BYU Homecoming Cougar Run today.

    wife and I did the 5k. Kids did the kids races. Fun times were had by all, particularly since the race runs along the parade route just minutes before the parade starts, so there was some cheering and music and high-fiving by kids.

    Finished 55th overall/8th in age group. The age group right below mine oddly enough I would have taken 2nd with my time, as for my own age group to medal I would have had to run less than a 19:50. I think I need another year before I can even dream of breaking 20.

    As it stands, I set a new PR for 5k distance, beat my old one by more than 30seconds. Official time was 23:15 and that included a few seconds getting to the start (gun-timed).

    The highlight for me was seeing my wife finish her first 5k. the fact that we finished off the day with tailgating, BYU win, and more tailgating didn't hurt either.

    Oktoberfest 10k this morning. My first 10k race.

    29th overall
    2nd Age Group
    49:29

    My goal was to see if I could break 50, so I'm happy. It was perfect weather and a good event, especially the dogs and sauerkraut at the end.

    I'm interested to see what your splits were (if you know them), based on your 23:15 5k.

    Wish I knew...is there any way to know that besides using a GPS watch?
    I would have liked to see them because in that 5k I know I ran out of gas earlier than I wanted and ran a much slower 3rd mile.

    Not that I know of. That's why I love the Garmin so much.

    Wish I had a couple hundred extra bucks and I'd at least try to find an older model Garmin. Even without HR monitor I could benefit by having some pace info. For example, when I do tempo runs I'm just guessing by feel at my pace for that middle 'tempo' section of the run.

    the only other way I can think of to know splits is at a race like yesterday's where each mile is marked, and using a stopwatch that can record multiple times. Unfortunately, when i wear a watch to run it's a $9 watch from Walmart. :/

    Oh well. I'm still trying to get my winter gear together....the money for a gps watch will have to come a different year if at all.

    Highway to Hale 5k/10k today, I did the 5k.

    2nd in age group (gave me a first place medal though since the guy in front of me was 2nd overall)
    10th overall male
    24:08 on a 3.24 mile course.
    This was a fun race, over 400 runners between the two which probably had to do in part with the fact that the Hale Center Theater (race sponsor) gave everyone who ran free tickets. It was well-organized, good shirt, lots of fun prizes, lots of costumes and tons of awards for costume categories. It was chip-timed as well. I don't know how they can afford to give away so many free tickets to plays (10k runners got two tickets to each of the first two shows of the season!) and season ticket packages to overall winners and costume winners. But I'm not complaining.

    Even though this race competes with the Halloween Half in Provo, I can see it getting bigger and bigger if it stays this well organized and if the participation prize is still free tickets.

    My 10 year old ran a 5k last weekend and clocked 32:25. His proudest achievement was that he ran the whole thing and never stopped to rest or walk.

    Ran my first race back after my surgeries. Clocked a 24:56 in a local 5K fun run. There were over 1,000 that ran and I started about in the middle. Bad planning on my part as I was late getting to the corral. The first mile was spent dodging people, but my time wasn't bad for that mile so I probably didn't suffer much but maybe 10-15 seconds. I took 5th in my age group and something like 64th overall...but it was a fun run so maybe a good 3/4 of the people there were just plodding along.

    No pain at all in the knee, which is good. This is the first time I've really pushed it hard. I'm hoping to get below 24 mins at some point, which I think I can do.

    Congrats on running without pain in the knee. I had surgery three years ago and am just now able to run cautiously without pain, but I am still timed with a calendar.
    Are you really an Adele fan? My condolences.

    Mol, it's been good seeing your progress and I'm happy for you that it's coming along. Just watch out for the 20-mile training run.

    The wife and I ran a half this weekend and it's easily the smallest race we've ever run -- ~250 finishers, though it did finish with additional 5k and 10k runners -- and I really enjoyed it. I've run the Disney Half and the Chicago marathon and I just thought big races were the thing for me, but it was great not having to weave in and out and really being able to control my own pace. And the spacing allowed me to see someone 50 yards ahead down the back quarter and push myself to reel them in. It also helped that it was a fairly flat course and a nice, historic town, but I want to consider more of that size.
    I have nothing else to say at this time.

    My chip time was 1:46:09, which was a slight PR for me and I'm excited about that. Honestly, after bonking at Chicago in October, that was lingering in my mind pretty heavily, so I was worried about turning it up too much. But I decided that at mile 9 I would up the pace and I felt great and only wished I had done it sooner. I've been putting more time into speed work with a group on Tuesday mornings and I thin that's paying off. I really wanted to go sub 1:45 and I'm quite confident now that I can and it's tempting to look for another race before the temps head up too much.
    I have nothing else to say at this time.
