  • Overall course based on my ability: Just right

  • Comments: This was a nice flat course. Only about 100 runners or so showed up but these runners were fast. About 30 seconds into the race, most of the pack was moving away from me. I think the average time was between 22 - 23 minutes. Maybe that is always the case but in a small race you really feel isolated in the back of the pack! In my past two races, I have passed someone in the last 100 yards or so. In this race, I had the honor returned to me - BIG TIME! I was trailing a red ponytail for about 3/4 of the race. I started my kick and passed her. With about 25 yeards left, I saw this red blur from the corner of my eye. It was her and see had about a dozen friends screaming for her... I had no kick so I just watched as she passed. That pretty much sucked! What was truly strange is that she never came over afterwards and laughed or smiled about it. I guess I was due! Call it kharma :-) lesson learned... Although the race used a chip timing system, I did not shop up on the coolrunning.com official
