Last weekend, Sean and I headed down to Tecolote Canyon in San Diego to run the first race of a 4 race series. The "Dirt Devil" series consists of a 5k, 10k, 15k, and half marathon, all over the course of the next few months. We had a great time. The course was beautiful and challenging, but not too hard. One major hill was all we had to deal with and there weren't too many people out there, which was nice. Here are a few pictures from the race (ignore the words over the front of the picture - yes, I'm too cheep to pay for them, so I steal them from the internet!).
Sean at about the 1.5 mile mark.
Me...a few minutes behind him!
Charging towards the finish line!!!
Me, desperately trying to catch the girl ahead of me...failing in the end by about 2 steps - grrrr!
The overall course ended up being about 3.3 miles, vice the typical 3.1 for a 5k, but don't worry - they didn't charge us for the extra .2!
