Louisville Triple Crown of Running
55F / 13C
= 1h 21m 58s
Age Group Rank
Drove down to Louisville the night before with Andrea. We stayed with Andy and his wife. Got to sleep fairly early and it was nice not worrying about a baby monitor going off.
I had a piece of pumpkin bread and carried a bottle of water with me to the start. Andrea hung out with Andy and I and snapped a few pictures before the race started. It was nice to be on time for the race
(as compared to the last time I did this race in 2008 ...
1h 21m 58s
08m 12s min/mile
Almost six minutes faster than 2008! That's the good news!
This race went really smooth. I felt like I started off a bit fast, but I never really paid for it. The weather conditions were perfect. I felt nice and cool the entire race. The hills in the park weren't as bad as I remembered them to be. I had a brief mental letdown when I discovered there wasn't any food at the Mile 6 aid station
(I really could have used a gu around then
) but they had some oranges somewhere after Mile 7 and that was enough. Smoked the last mile which of course means I needed to go faster earlier.
What would you do differently?:
Surprise! Train more!
Met up with Andrea and then sat around waiting 10 long minutes for Andy. Waited for the inevitable knee problem to set in.
What limited your ability to perform faster:
My only wish would be some gel packs out there cause I really like that sugar hit after I've been out there an hour or so.
