Bloomington, Indiana

37F / 3C
Total Time = 34m 2s
Overall Rank = 219/385
Age Group = 40-44
Age Group Rank = 2/15
Event warmup:

jogging back to the car, about a half-mile away, to get my iPod.
  • 34m 2s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 10m 59s  min/mile

I felt like I did a good job of pacing myself, but on the course you were either going uphill or downhill. The uphill portions were a challenge. There were no really flats to speak of. I really enjoyed the downhill portions; just relaxed and let my body carry me down.
What would you do differently?:

Figure out a way to get some time in on the hills. It might have been a good idea to get to the starting line a little sooner. When the race started, I was still adjusting my shoelaces :-)

Event comments:

Had to leave right after the race to get out to Lake Lemon to watch my daughter race with the I.U. Rowing Team!!!

Nice job!  Congrats on the 2nd place in your AG. 

I know it is hilly down that way so this had to have been a challenging course.  Congrats again!  You deserve them.
