Race #21: Zoom Quarry Lakes 5k

I’m 40% of the way to my goal of 52 races this year to raise awareness of Guillain–Barré syndrome.

Today’s race was the Zoom Quarry Lakes 5k. Quarry Lakes is nestled in the suburb of Fremont, on the south-east corner of the San Francisco Bay. It’s a beautiful location — if you’re looking for a leisurely run, it’s definitely worth a visit. The race itself was along a pretty mix of gravel trails and meandered around the lakes. It was well-organized, started on time, and had a pretty sweet enameled medal. Definitely penciling the race in for next year! (and, as I always say, maybe I’ll run the 10k or the half marathon next time.)

Our race today wasn’t fast, Selina and I crossed the line together in 24:10. I hurt my foot or ankle or Achilles or something a couple of weeks ago, and it’s been swollen and sore. With some rest and ice, it’s pretty much back to normal. I’m going to stick to a steady cruising pace for a couple of weeks, and probably run only one race per weekend for now — it’s a long way to go to get to 52 races!
