Clean Air 5k

The Clean Air 5k is my favorite local 5k. My friends are among the organizers, and I have set a few 5k personal best at this race over the past 8 years. I had been running a lot of miles but didn't train for speed. Still, I was hoping to run under 20 minutes. I went out fast. Too fast. 2:40 for first 1/2 mile. 6:10 at the first mile. Then I ran out of gas. I struggled but managed to stay below 6:30 pace for mile 2. By mile 3, I was dying! I think mile 3 must have taken 6:45. I started throwing up as I sprinted for the finish line. I was still going at a 6:30 pace while puking! My final chip time was 19:55! It was hard! I don't think I will ever go under 20 minutes in a 5k again. Photo & Video Sharing by SmugMug

Roadrunner Northeast Winter 10k

The weather was cold and windy. I felt horrible the entire race. I thought I would be able to go under 42 mins but I ended up at around 46. Photo & Video Sharing by SmugMug

Houston Marathon

I was the pacer for my cousin as he completed his first marathon in January this year. We barely made the cut-off time of 6 hours.

When I take a break from swimming, cycling or running, I enjoy exploring Philadelphia and its suburbs. One of my favorite day trip places is a visit to Chanticleer, a magical garden outside of Philadelphia.
