55F / 13C
Total Time = 2h 02m 19s
Overall Rank = 29/120
Age Group = 45-49
Age Group Rank = 1/8
Event warmup:

sat in the car with my Uncle for 2 hours. Richard started at 7:00, I did not start until 9:00< It was chilly.
  • 2h 02m 19s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 09m 20s  min/mile

I put in a hard effort. I knew 2 girls were ahead of a young whipper snapper age I just made sure no other chicks went by.
What would you do differently?:

bring my own water. I dehydrated. I felt icky the last mile or so. Def more water.

I was happy to take 1st in my AG, but really felt more proud I was 3rd overall female. Behind a super fast woman in her 20s that did around 1:40, and the 15-19 year old who did around 1:55. I can still hang.
Post race
Warm down:

Waited for Fra and Richard to finish. Both killed it! came in way sooner than I was anticipating. Fra got second in his age group (75-79)...b/c he talks too much! and Richard took 1st AG- finishing much faster than he originally thought.

FUN. We changed, loaded up in the car and started the drive home. Stopped to eat at Chili's, I think it was.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Just the shape I am in...unfocused training but having fun.

Event comments:

This is a great race. This is my 4th time there. Last year I did 34 miles but never finished the finish I would have had to run the final 5 mile loop. Wasnt' happening. I have done the 13.1 twice before. It's a fun company that has a series and I just love the atmosphere they create! I will go back next year for sure.

The first time I ventured into the deep murky green lake and could not see the bottom my muscles tensed and my imagined fears surfaced. What exactly lies beneath?

By gradually running for increasingly longer periods on a softer surface, you will learn the technique and come to realize the benefits in injury prevention and speed.
