Emily’s Run this weekend marks the 2nd of 3 races in the Triple Crown 5k Race Series, and despite the rain the race saw a record attendance of 581 runners.
Times were a little slower this year but both races were close, with Corey Bean and Ryan Fitzsimons racing neck and neck through the finish in 17:06 and Andrea Rotz edging Danielle Paul by only 2 seconds in 20:15.
I was nowhere near where I ran last year as I managed to hurt my foot earlier in the week. It didn’t seem too bad before the race after most of the week off so I ran anyway, but it’s been extremely swollen and painful ever since.
I’ll find out this afternoon what’s wrong with it, and hopefully will be able to run next month in the final race. My 19:25 is probably not going to be fast enough to let me win the series, though, especially without any training for the next few weeks if I need an extensive amount of time off.
