It was a hot night for a run – this year’s Anthem Corporate Run was another muggy night in Innsbrook with dozens of companies represented. I’ve been doing a lot of running the past few weeks and I used this as and opportunity to beat my 5k time. I started out a little too fast running the first mile in 7:10. I slowed up a bit as the race went on and finished in 23:29 – which was good enough for 8th fastest at my company. The party afterward was well attended and it was fun catching up with past colleagues and friends at various companies.
We had a beautiful evening for the Anthem Corporate Run 5k. Companies from around the city sponsor teams, there’s a run around Innsbrook and then a couple thousand participants hang out among the company tents for a big party. I had a great time catching up with friends from all the different companies.
The RG65 season is underway at the Richmond Model Yacht Club on Lake Rooty and we had nice weather for the 2nd race day of the series. Unfortunately, No Quarter had radio problems and became uncontrollable after the first race. I still got to borrow a couple boats to sail – thanks Rob & Marc.
I’ve wanted to get a slightly bigger boat that would enable me to sail it in the choppier water in Deltaville. I haven’t decided what I want yet, but a new member came who was interested in getting into the RG65 class and I ended up selling him my boat on the spot. The RG65 was fun to sail and great for Lake Rooty and I’ll sure I’ll find another boat in the coming months.
After wanting to run this race for a few years I finally had the opportunity to run the Anthem Corporate Run with 40 of my co-workers and another 1,000 or more runners from around the city. Turned out to be a great night for it and I ran a little over 5k in 24:37 for a 7’46” pace.
We had a nice afternoon for the first RG65 race at Richmond Model Yacht Club on Lake Rooty. I was a bit rusty and overpowered in the puffs and managed a 5th overall out of 9 boats in 8 races. It was fun getting back on the water and seeing what happens when I actually got the boat pointed the right way.
