Fall Classic

Yesterday I ran the New Balance Fall Classic 10 km at UBC. It was cold. It was very cold. Some parts of the course were icy. I hadn't trained, so I didn't get a PR, though according to the organizers, I did. My elapsed time was 56:14 on the website, but I say that's bull since I timed myself and it took almost exactly 58 minutes to cross the finish. Not impressed with this race for several reasons, but mostly because the chip time clearly didn't work. That's what you pay for when you do an organized race -- official chip time. Well, that and the t-shirt, but they didn't have that in my size.

Definitely not planning to do this one again. The only good thing I can say about it is the money goes to the Heart & Stroke Foundation, so at least it's not a financial waste. And a run is a run is a run. So yeah, I got my excersize for the day.

That's silly that the chip didn't work well. I guess it's a good thing you timed yourself too, but at least the times weren't THAT far off. I've never really understood the importance of timing one's self because as you just said a run is a run is a run.
