2009 Davey Tree 5k/10k

After months of planning, the big day finally arrived for the Davey Tree 5k/10k. Being the first race I formally sat on a committee for, I was really excited. We had made some changes to the event this year and the outcome was a great turnout and excellent responses from the runners.

As for me, I was able to sneak in and run both the 5k and 10k. Being right smack in the middle of some big 100+ mile weeks getting ready for Burning River, I just didn’t have the spring in my legs like I usually do. But a true “double” was a first for me and also a great training run. Not at all easy, but I still managed to pull down some hardware taking 3rd in my age group in the 10k for the second year in a row.

We are already working on plans for next year’s event. All I can say is expect some BIG changes to the event and taking it to the next level. See you all there in 2010! You don’t want to miss this one.
