Age Group Rank
Got up, 2 cups of coffee, raisin bagel with peanut butter, a banana. Got everyone else up and drove to the race site
(about 30 minutes
About 5-10 minutes of jogging since I'd ditched the outer layers. Ran in a long-sleeve wicking tee and running tights. Moved to right in front of the 10 minute pace sign and hoped to meet up with WSM9363
08m 58s min/mile
Hadn't run much
(I think WSM9363 and I were working to give the race to the other...
)so I was thinking 50 minutes was realistic and 45 a challenging goal. He came in at 45:04
) but was several minutes behind me during the run.
Was hoping to meet up with WSM9363
), but BAMBAM66 and another relative did the 1-mile run. WSM had a couple others doing the 1-mile run too. My mom came to watch
(she held my outer layers during the run
) since WSM9363 and I aren't competing together very often.
As we walked up to the race site, we saw a guy wearing a
(QR Farmer John I think
) and fins. I thought that was pretty cool, but would be a tough way to run a race. Finally passed him a couple hundred yards from the finish
(I wonder how fast he'd be in regular running gear?
Cheered on the wetsuit guy and a few others along the way, but I was trying hard to not blow up this race.
What would you do differently?:
Besided "run more..."? Probably make better arrangements for meeting up with my brother.
Walked and stretched a bit watching for WSM9363 to finish
(didn't see him
). Had a couple of cookies and some water before we headed back for Thanksgiving dinner.
What limited your ability to perform faster:
Training?? I think my pace/HR was much better than my warmer weather races.
One water station
) that I skipped. We didn't hang around for the post-race awards since Mom had about 50 people coming for dinner in less than 3 hours.
