6 miles. i was a spectator at the oktoberfast 5k this morning. i'm still too gimpy to do any kind of racing, but i was quite interested in watching a fast 5k on the track. jake and andrea did a nice job of organizing the whole thing, and they got a good group together for the race. i received the job of photograhper (not my best subject), and kam's son jens was the official timer. i think i got a few good pictures, but a lot of them were duds because everyone was going by so quickly. it was certainly a fast race and everyone ran really well (lots of PRs).
i joined the group for a short cooldown around sugarhouse park (one grass loop, one road loop). my foot held up fine but i'm still experiencing some tight areas throughout my legs. i just have to keep being patient with my body.
it was nice to see some fellow bloggers this morning and meet a few new faces as well. i think jake and andrea are planning for more races like this in the future, and i look forward to participating -- track races are always fun and there's definitely room for more events like this.
congrats to everyone who ran st. george this morning.
