Some sadistic person had the last mile of this race going uphill with the last .1 mile finally going downhill. There were 4 high school crosscountry runners ahead of me I tried to keep up with but no luck. The 16 year old winner finished at 19:55. I almost gave in and walked 1 time but toughed it out and I'm glad I did.
What would you do differently?:

Train more hills.
Post race
Warm down:

By the time we got finished the bad weather started. It started raining and within 20 mins. the temp dropped 19 degrees to 40 degrees. Ran to vehicle and put on my sweats.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Hills......2 trips to the Chiropractor days before the race to get my back unfrozen.

Event comments:

Was expecting a line up and run race but it was a timed race with race numbers, grab bag, and after race refreshments. A group from the Knoxville Track Club came over and helped. They are an awesome group.
