This year I ran the Sporting Life 10k for the second time, besting last year’s time of 56:12 with a time of 49:28. My goal this year was to achieve a time of less than fifty minutes, which was accomplished only because I sprinted to the finish line after being able to read the gun time clock. Next year’s goal is an aggressive forty-five minutes.
FYI, here is a comparison of my chip time and placing between 2004 and 2005:
|Year||Chip time||Overall standing||Men’s standing||Men 25-29 standing|
|2004||56:12||2708/5220 (52%)||1708/2378 (72%)||233/313 (74%)|
|2005||49:28||1491/6339 (24%)||1164/2976 (39%)||159/349 (46%)|
