Brian Mazza Memorial run 2008

I managed to win this race around Crimson Lake once again - my 4th time placing 1st! My time was 35:41, which is quite good for me. This course is up and down and there's lots of big gravel, which I find hard to run on. It is hard to get a good grip on those rolling rocks. When I was much faster, back in 1999, I ran this race in 35:00. Note that I ran 5000m in the low 15's back then, so considering that, this time is quite good for me.

My friend David Arial stayed behind me and had me scared up until about 8 km, when he suddenly experienced some breathing problems and had to shut it down. He still did a good race. I am also coaching David, who is a very talented runner and he has improved immensely this summer already.

My wife and youngest daughter ran the 3 km loop. Mostly everybody were given the wrong directions and ended up going quite a bit farther than 3 km, but my wife and daughter have done this one before and knew where to turn. Amalia is only 4 years old, but this was her 3rd time running this race! Impressive, I think.

Our 14 year-old daughter Karly did really well too and ran the 10 km trail run without any problems, even though she hasn't been doing much running lately. She is very talented.

Other Camrose runners ran too - Gerhard, Wade, Robin also ran and enjoyed this event. This race used to be called the "David Thompson Trail Run", but has been renamed because of the passing of the organizer Brian Mazza some years ago.
