Redondo Beach Super Bowl Sunday 5k/10k

I like running on the morning of big eating days and Super Bowl Sunday is definitely one of them. I haven’t run on Super Bowl Sunday in a few years so I spent the night at my buddy’s house, a couple of miles from the start of the Redondo Beach 5k/10k, woke up by the beach and rode a bike to the starting line this year.

This is a fun race. It has a real party atmosphere. Many people were in costumes, wearing their favorite football team’s jerseys or just being goofy. That is the part of the race I participated in while the serious runners were probably already finished. Check out the video and always look for me out on the course. I’d love to put you in the next one.

    That was an awesome video you put together. You totally sold me on the Redondo Beach Super Bowl Sunday 5k/10k and I’m definitely going to do it next year.

    This would have been a really fun thing to do in place of watching the super bowl (or right before it). I have have to check it out next year.

    sorry i missed you at the race. my time was .8 minutes/mile faster than my last race prior to your class and more importantly i finished without any major discomfort or pain and just went on with my day. i did what you said and started slowly then speed up to tempo at about 1/2 way through and then went as fast as i could go the last quarter or half mile. when others were stopping at mile 4 and 5 i could see that my training kicked it and i just kept going. now to work on speed. thanks again.
