The Super Sunday 10K in Sacramento offered a new early season short course option to the legendary PA / USATF Grand Prix Circuit. I was a little unsure of my fitness, but wanted to support fielding a full scoring Aggies Open Men's squad and rep our awesome HOKA ONE ONE sponsor.
The race itself was solid from the start, with Gordon Sturgess handling the majority of the pacing duties. The course led us through the Sac State campus, surrounding neighborhoods, and levy bike paths along the American River. With about 2 kilometers left in the race, I moved into first place. This was just before the lead bikes took us over the Guy West Bridge (which looks like a mini Golden Gate) as the path descended back on to campus. The raced finished with 200 meters around the track followed by a 100 yard stretch on the stadium's football field terminating in the end zone.
This event was a lot of fun! My wife Krista and I made a nice weekend of it, connecting with friends in the Sacramento area.
