No “rein” today! Finished my 9th race of 29: The Lexus LaceUp Running Series - Riverside Reindeer 5K in a Riverside, CA. With the finishing time of 26 minutes and 26 seconds, I placed 6th of 31 in my age group, 59th of 369 in the men’s division and 78th of 1,082 overall in the 5K.
This is the fourth and final race in the LaceUp Running Series, my fifth time competing in this race, my sixth race in Riverside, my ninth race of my “29 By 29th” goal and 20th 5K (28th race overall) this year.
Back again for the fifth year in a row! This has always been a interesting and challenging course with some uphills and downhills. The mud has made it difficult in some areas but I managed to finish in 26:26, which is now my second best course record (best is 24:38). This race is the last stop of the series and just like last year, I missed the Rancho Palos Verdes race and missed out on earning the Challenger Series medal. 😕 Great to see some new and familiar faces at the races (@this_rebel_elastic_heart, @inner.grounds.of.light, @kingsfan1068, @nomorefutbolmami)! Until next year, Lexus LaceUp, Black Cap is out! 😎🇺🇸💪🏾👊🏾 P.S.: For those of you that shop on Sleefs.com or have not shopped there, click on my link in my bio and use my code “THECAP40” to save 40% off your next order!
