This section of my website used to be dedicated to triathlon training, personal race results and certification reviews, like Turbo Kick. I am expanding it to include more generic health & fitness topics. Also, I talk a lot about "D" -- he's my husband (Dave Liu)!

San Francisco FrontRunners' Pride Run

I participated in the San Francisco FrontRunners' 24th annual Pride Run on Saturday, June 28, 2003 and the 10K results are finally in! I came in 164 out of 221 runners at a time of 56:11 minutes to place 18 out of 33 in my division.

At the beginning of the race, I made the mistake of trying to keep up with a lady I met there called Jean who said she runs 8:30-9:00/m. That lasted all of 10 seconds as I saw her speeding way from me. I also got caught up in the stampede of runners and tried to hold a pace that was too fast. It took me a mile or so before I was able to settle down into a more comfortable pace.

In the last mile, I started slowing down because I ran out of gas. To prevent this, I'm going to run longer distances during training and also carry water with me.
