Back to Pioneer Park for the third race in the series. Martinho and I are the only male runners to have completed the first two races. Winner of the series wins a free pair of shoes from South Sound Running. Martinho beat me by a few steps in the second race, he has an amazing finishing kick. In the first race he took a bit of a wrong turn and that has given me a 39 second lead on him coming in to today's race. There are more runners here today including some real fast guys so I know that I will not win the race. My strategy is to not go out too fast and keep Martinho close. As long as I do not fall or lose a shoe in the mud I should win the series.
