This is the second year I've run in the Reno Journal Jog, and whoo-HOO! I shaved 2 minutes off my time from last year. 42:15 for an 8k is not bad, eh? So I placed 14th in my age group and 410 out of 1098 overall. They switched the route around a bit, and we ran it in reverse from last year, but it was a great course- fast and mostly flat, and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day! My friend Turi also ran, and took 8 minutes off his time from last year.* He wrote a really nice blog about this year's run- check it out!
*Last year we blabbed through most of the race which might account for the slower times. (Well, on his part for sure! Mine, maybe not.)
