So today I ran the Richmond Fire Department Beat The Heat 5K! Overall it was a great event that raised money for the Richmond Firefighters Scholarship Fund which provide educational monies to children and spouses of current Richmond City Firefighters.
Officially I finished in 30 mins and 6secs which placed me 131 out of 311 overall and 32 out of 50 in my age bracket. The only issue I have is that the time is measured by 1 clock that starts at one time. So when the clock started I had still not crossed the starting line which affected my overall time as there was time running while I was not. I know it is all in fun but I am competitive and want to go as fast as I possibly can.
The real story however was during the Kids “Fun Race”
Over all this was a great event and it supported a very good cause. Make sure you do not miss next years!
