Another race, another land speed record for humans with my DNA match
For the race, I set my pace alarms at 8:25 and 9:05 (8:45 pace) and did obey the watch, well, except for the last mile. At the (very) end of the race, I was cruising at a 4:37 pace! In fact, the last .06, I averaged a 5:02 min pace! Now, that is running!
I had to thank two guys that were ahead of me the entire race until I shot past them at the end. I knew if I could keep them close, I might be able to beat them with my kick, and sure enough, I did. I think I passed 4 or 5 people in the last tenth. 8~P
As soon as the results are posted, I'll follow up with placement and the such. Or I should say, whenever I get around to it, I'll look up the results and probably just post them on my next run...
Tomorrow (Sunday, what is this Mr. Schedule???): 4 miles @ 10:15 pace
UPDATE: Results are in!
Age group (45-49): 7/10
Overall: 69/161 Top half!
