First race of the year, with 2 weeks of training and a busted knee, never really expected to break any records. But kicked off the season with a fairly good run of 53 minutes and 54 seconds in strong wind and rain. Bushy Park 10K is a relative easy run, no hills to really worry about and is great for first time runners. The 2 laps around the park is actually quite refreshing for the lungs. I also managed to rope in my brother-in-law to be, to run his first 10K race and he did an amazing job not only achieving a personal best but also pushing me along as I began to limp because of the knee. It was a relief to finish and had my wonderful fiancee waiting in the rain for us with a hot dog. Priceless!
