Race Report: Rodes City Run 10K

Now THAT was fun.

The Rodes City Run was my first 10K, and I must say-- I really enjoyed it.

Here are some pictures from this morning:

I had all wardrobe combinations laid out and ready to go...

Ok, the ONLY issue I had with the race: I was a bit disturbed by the lack of runners dancing to the "Cupid Shuffle" when it played before the line-up. How can you NOT do the Cupid Shuffle? Well...I did. To the left, to the left...

Awww, me and the Hubster.

Hey! I found Hoss after all!

All the seeded runners. Or sprinters. They were incredible (not that I saw them).

I'm over there somewhere!

It was a GREAT day for a race and I think I learned a lot about participating in large races. I'll dedicate a later to post to race-lesson learned.

My clock time was 1:03:34, but it took me close to 4 minutes to cross the start line. So it looks like my chip time MIGHT be sub-1 hour?!

Holy Moly.


  1. Wow, congrats!! That is great!! I am so jealous, I have never run in a big race before! My 5K was maybe 70 people and the 10K I did last month had probably 40. I want to run a big one, just for the spectacle of it, ha!

    Cute pics and great race report :)

  2. Yay! Good job, it would have taken me a week to run 10K :)

  3. WOW look at you go, congratulations rock star.

  4. Great job on the run! Races are so much fun :) Can't wait to hear the report!
