This afternoon we then ran the River City Rat Race for the second year in a row. The local YMCA puts it on as a fundraiser. I think I heard them say there were 1100+ runners this year. Jane and I ran together for the 5k, then I kept going and did the 10k. Carrie did the 5k and finished ahead of us. Jane and I averaged between 10-11 min/miles on the 5k. I never even noticed what we ran it in. I sped up some to 9-9 1/2 min./miles for the second 5k. I wasn't really shooting for a time or anything, but do have to admit that I kind of like passing people. Anyway, it was a beautiful day for a run, and this is a magnificently beautiful course through downtown Fort Wayne and along the river.
Jane and I are in the center of this video at about the 2:15 mark (she's in a green shirt; I'm in a black one):
They're off at the River City Rat Race 10k Run and 5k Race/Walk!
