2015 Run to Feed the Hungry
For the eleventh time in the last twelve years [2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2006, 2005 and 2004], Sharon, Jack and I ran the Run to Feed the Hungry. We entered in 2007, but I was feeling under the weather and we decided not to run before heading to San Francisco for Thanksgiving.
For the four year in a row, we parked on University Avenue and walked across the Guy West Bridge to the campus. Sharon ran untimed, while Jack was meeting a friend so I ended up at the starting line by myself.
I had a very slow time this year. I had been struggling with my right knee over the last couple of weeks, but it never bothered me. I was just slow... My time was 1:00:21 for an average pace of 9:43. Based on Runkeeper, my splits were: 1-9:46; 2-9:33; 3-9:41; 4-9:51; 5-9:41, and; 6-9:39.
Running with a friend from St. Francis, Jack finished in 58:27 for an average pace of 9:25.
