The Rye Derby
I ran a 5k this morning. Some notes on the run.
Took place in Rye, NY. A very beautiful town. I would imagine that has something to do with the incredible wealth of those who inhabit the town.
Not a very large crowd. Maybe 500 people or so. It prevented a lot of the weaving in between people that I find most annoying about road races.
I was ran with my friend who was participating in his first race.
I think a ten year old girl beat us (by a couple of minutes)
My friend’s family came out to watch us run. It was cool to have people cheering for us. I liked it.
We sprinted in. I wasn’t trying to kill him, but almost did.
It was pretty warm and it was my first time running in a bright sun. Always surprises me how much energy that drains.
Our time was 29:11
We celebrated with burgers and a beer. Just one beer.
His two year old daughter and wife were at lunch. His daughter will likely be a softball player as she enjoys throwing things.
It was a good run. Glad I got out of the city for a quick minute.
