Pre-race routine:

Picked up Dud and tried to get Mike. Misunderstanding so we met him there.
Event warmup:

Quarter mile run from the parking lot at the library to race start. Gun went off while I was in the rest room!
  • 1h 15m 41s
  • 8 miles
  • 09m 28s  min/mile

We felt we needed to give the competition a headstart. Dud, Mike and I took off down the sidewalk and it was at about the 1 mile mark where we finally caught the last place runner. She was running about a 10:30 pace. Never got passed the entire race, the wind and snow was tough up along the lake.

Finally managed to run a race with the 2 of them without getting seperated or me letting my comptetiveness take over. Really enjoyed the conversation and with the weather, was the best option all around!

Thought about running it all out earlier in the week to test current fitness, but not the right thing today.
