Another year at the Corporate Challange

As a 3.5 mile tuesday night race, the corporate challenge really is a unique race. This past tuesday I ran the race for the second year in a row, finishing in 28:27 which was disappointingly a bit slower than last year.

Initially I had considered taking it easy for this race, however the weather was pretty perfect for a run, so I decided to be more aggressive. Now I will get back to resting as the Buffalo Marathon is only a few days away.

Running the Corporate Challenge

On tuesday night I ran in the Corporate Challenge in downtown Rochester. I have wanted to run this race for some time, but have previously never been part of a corporation that was large enough to field a team.

I ran the 3.5 mile course in 27:24 which put me in 443rd place. While this is the first time I have ever raced this distance, I had hoped to be a bit quicker. Unfortunately the weather was warm, the course had little to no shade, and the company uniform had be racing in a cotton t-shirt for the first time since high school. While the heat did get to me, I didn’t do too poorly and it was a fun event.

Next week I will continue my three race streak of racing on weekdays by running in the Dirt Cheap race at Webster Park.
