Pennies for Pencils 5k Results

   Posted by: jmueller   in Running

I ran in the Pennies for Pencils 5k race with my brother on Saturday, October 16, while my wife and two sons walked it.  It was a beautiful, sunny, brisk morning.  It was a pretty tough course with a lot of turns and several hills through the Eastern Michigan University campus.  When we showed up and met my brother at 8:30 am, we found out that the race start and finish were right outside the building that his department is temporarily using for offices.

I have uploaded the race results here: 2010 Pennies for Pencils 5k Results

I ended up with a 9th place finish overall.  My official time was 23:37.99.  This was the fastest pace that I have run yet.

Now it is time to practice for the Turkey Trot 10k in Downtown Detroit on Thanksgiving Day morning.

Congrats Jeff, that is under an 8 minute mile pace. That’s SMOKIN’ Deb Ran the Detroit 1/2 Marathon on Sunday in 2 hrs 13 mins. She also is running the Turkey Trot. The week before I walked 5 miles on Belle Isle for the American Cancer Society at a blistering pace of 20min miles.

Good luck in the Turkey Trot!
