Running the 10K Vancouver Sun Run

Bam.  Nailed the 10K Vancouver Sun Run in 58:29.

Very happy with the time because:

a) My first k was an abysmal 8:15 due to masses of people at the start.

b) I was forever zig-zagging around other runners/walkers.  I actually ran an extra 400 meters due to dodging people.

c) I wasn't at all beat up at the end.  I had plenty more left in me.

If I can maintain that pace for my upcoming half-marathon, then I can beat my goal of a sub 2 hour time. *fingers crossed*

The event itself was lotsa fun.  Plenty of characters, bands, and cheering support were throughout the course.

The only downside was the sheer size of the event.  47,000 people ran!  I didn't start running myself until about one hour after the starting gun.

Megin and Alex Mehaffey (who is visiting from the England) also ran the course.

All in all, a great day.  Looking forward to running it again next year.
