Weekend Roundup 9/29

And a good Monday to your sir. Hope everyone recovered well after the OSU win on Saturday. The spread looked good at Mike's on Saturday and it's too bad I couldn't partake in the grub due to my early morning race at the Minster Oktoberfest.

Speaking of the race, you couldn't ask for a better day to run 6.2 miles(10k) on. I defended my title as World's Fastest Ellerbrock by beating Matt with a time of 45:48. I have never ran a 10k before so I wasn't sure what to expect other than a lot of running. It was the biggest race I have ever been in with what I estimate to be about 3000 runners. So the first mile was extremely packed and reflected with my first mile split being around 8:10. Surprising to even me that my splits got faster with every mile with my final mile being sub 7 minutes. One thing that was really cool about the race was there were lots of spectators out drinking beer in front of their houses. Since about half the race was in town, it was cool to see people out partying at 9AM. Kinda like if they had a race down Lane Avenue on gameday.

We capped off a great race with a couple of pitchers of beer (yes they still have the half gallon milk jugs) and good German food. Saw Big Billy, Big Joe & Ruth and even saw Jew's lil sister puking after the race. Gearing up for another 10k this next Saturday. Anyone want in? Ha!
