Let the Race Season Begin!

First race of the season!

Chili Bowl 5K Classic was held in downtown Cleveland (starting by the Terminal Tower) on Saturday February 13. Liz, and I signed up. This is part of the Hermes Road Race series and we are both signed up. So there is going to be a lot of racing going on for both of us!

Race started at 9:30 am. Temperature = 26F & light snow. Roads were slippery.

Chilly at the Chili Bowl - how appropriate!

*** Results ***

I finished first in my age group (1/28, 44/685 overall) with 21:06.
Liz finished 5/19 with 27:06

Mile splits: 6:26, 6:54, 7:26 (slight uphill in the way back)

My award was a nice (chili) bowl. I am happy with the results, considering the slippery roads and the fact that I have gained 10 lbs since November! Time to get into shape!

We both enjoyed the race and are happy to see our placement in the Road Racing Series:

I am first in my age group and Liz is second in her age group!
