Race Results

The Race results are now available! Snookums and I finished 916th and 917th out of 1060 runners. In my gender/age group I was 139th out of 161, and he was 60th out of 62. Amongst all females, I was 592nd out of 711 and he was 325th out of 348. You know, that makes our performance sound a lot crappier than it was. I’m going to chalk it up to the fact that the 8K run is pretty self-selecting, and most of the people who go for it are the “serious” runners. Everybody who was really unfit or just out for a laugh did one of the 4K events. So I refuse to let my feelings of accomplishment be diminished!

Addendum: The Snook would like it to be known if the race had taken place two months later (i.e. after his 30th birthday), his standing within his age group would have been much better.

  1. Congratulations! I think it’s great you two did a race together.

  2. So, 915 people may have run faster that day, but you ran faster than all of the thousands (millions?) of people in the Sydney area who didn’t run. There’s a lot to be said for getting out there and making the effort. And you beat your goal and got a personal best, right? That’s what it’s all about!

    Tell Snook to watch out: the 30 – 34 age bracket is typically the most competitive.

  3. You participated that’s all that matters
