Boston's Corporate Challenge
Team ASA 2006 - me, front left.
So every spring I run the JP Morgan Corporate Challenge 3.5 mile race... Three and a half miles is just long enough where you probably should get out and practice a bit beforehand, but just short enough where serious training is not needed. This year I tried to get out running twice a week prior to the race to get myself in shape... I also organized my companys participation in the event, and am happy to say that 26 registered runners from our company was a great turnout.
I was going for an 8 minute mile(28:00 minutes), and ended up finishing the race with a time of 29:20. It took me an extra minute just to make my way to the official start line, so I can say that I'm proud of myself for coming very close to my goal.. If I'm feeling ambitious, maybe next year I'll shoot for a lower time and a bit more dedicated training.
But now that is over, and hot weather is ahead... I wonder how much jogging/running I'll be doing before next spring rolls around.
