Last Saturday I ran the UPMC Genesis 10K run on the riverside by Heinz field. The course ran from Heinz to Washington’s Landing and back. It was a classic Pittsburgh race with two bridge crossings. I ran it with Patrick and Marissa and finished in 1:03:27 (126/254 finishers).
The race was smaller than I expected and it was fairly wet and cold. I had fun though will probably run it again next year. They probably could have used a few more porta-potties and better directions from the $3 parking to the race start!
My knee has been acting up since the Just a Shorts Run 5K so I took it easy during the race. I felt some pain in my knee near mile 4 but I finished strong anyway so I’m confident my knee is recovering and that I am on track for the marathon next month!
