Kurt and I decided to go out and do the East Los Angeles LA Sheriff’s 10K, a race I have done several times before.
It starts (and finishes) at the Citadel Factory Stores (which has a large parking lot). For the first time in many LASAA runs, there were LOADS of people, all trying to register race morning. Since the runs are all hand-timed and the registration is all hand-recorded, registering 100 people was slow going and prevented the race from starting on time by nearly an hour.
The course is all concrete roads around the area – boring. My knees hurt quite a bit and my right knee is especially feeling tweaky.
In a normal LASAA race, if I were to run sub-8:00 miles, then I would be about 25th overall and top 10 in my age division. However, today, with a time of 47:44, I finish in 95th place and 17th in my division. Crazy.
