What can I say about this race? It was way more than I expected it to be. After all there were close to 30,000 people running and walking. It was for a good cause and I actually raised 80 bucks. I scored a 16:51 in this race and ended up placing 6th. Adam Davis ended up winning the race with a low 15ish like time. I believe Sean Wade was about 10 secs behind him. Then there was another guy who I believe was from Denton, I've never seen him before, but he was pretty fast. He finished in the mid 15s. This was my first race in about 3 months so it provided me with some good feedback about where I was at fitness wise and how I would approach 5k's in the near future. The best part of the race for me was when I started running out of gas at the end and this guy and I were going stride for stride at the end. He had more in the tank and got me at the end but the crowd got riled up and excited for such a close and fast finish.
