Easy Run at the Sneak

Ran about 3 1/2 today, first run since Boston. Ran at the Cherry Creek Sneak Race before the start. I did not race this year obviously. I did want to do an easy run and start easing back into it. Zach ran it today. He did great 31:58, 63 overall and getting 2nd in his age group, the tough 15-19 division. 2nd year in a row he got 2nd. Way to Go Zach.

Zach and I drove to Matt's house, about a 1/2 mile from the race pickup point. We got there at 8:15, Alicia met us there, she lives in the neighborhood and was doing an hour and a half easy run (coming off a 1/2 iron man last weekend). Matt, his mom and sister-in-law walked to the sneak. Alicia, Zach and I ran down and got Zach's stuff. Then Alicia and I did about 2 1/2 on the sneak course, looping back to the start. It was a nice day, sunny, flowers blooming everywhere.

We saw everyone at the start. Matt, Bob, Zach, Tom, Craig and Tim were running. After the start I ran over to about the mile and a half point and watched them come through and gave them a little cheer. Zach, Matt, Bob, Tom, Craig and Tim. Then we walked to the finish and watched them come in. Same order. I was so happy and proud of Zach. He took almost 8 minutes off of his sneak time from last year. Not to mention beating everyone in my running group. :) I posted the results below and to the prostates site.

After the race, we chatted a bit as everyone picked up there post race Schwag. Looked for my sister Kim but never saw her. Then we walked back to Matt's (well Tom gave us a ride for a couple of blocks).

Matt had a cookout at his house. He lives in a nice little neighborhood and his house is really nice. Has a lot of upgrades for a 1920's house. He has a really neat backyard with a grape vine Gazebo. Some of the other runners came there and we talked about running and racing and the season to come and training runs. Craig told Zach he's ready for a Baker-Bowen run. Matt had burgers and brats and beer.

Good Times Matt, thanks.

3.3 Miles
