It felt good to race again. I didn't get to the start line in time so I got stuck in the middle of a ton of slow people, but it made my start really fun. I was just weaving in and out of people for the first 100 meters, trying not to plow any kids over. I eventually caught up to Carson and stuck with him for the rest of the first mile but then he picked it up and I couldn't keep up. I kept a pretty good pace going and tried catching this guy who was only 25 to 50 meters ahead of me. I closed the gap a bit but didn't finish the push off. I was definitely tired during the race but what got me was my right IT band which started giving me issues. I don't really know what I was expecting to do today. I wasn't sure what kind of shape I was in so this was a good race to see where I'm at. I won a pie for being 2nd in my age division (20 to 29) so that was cool. But probably the coolest part was that the race was almost the exact same course as the Saint George 5k so it was a very nostalgic race for me. It made me miss guys like Nick Hill, Preston Warby, Paul Gaona, and Dallin Gillespie who I have raced with at the Saint George 5k in years past.

Yes, we race and we have memories of days of yore and Good Times. Good Race For You way to push yourself.

Thanks. I have so many memories from races. My day dreams are often taken over by past races or my hopes for future races.
