I won my age group at the Home RunPosted: October 25, 2008 | Author: bqx40 | Filed under: race report | 2 Comments »
I ran the Home Run 5 miler in Bernheim Forest this morning.
I’m pretty sure that I was first Yum team runner in. Couldn’t quite
catch a female runner with a Swags sport shoes shirt on.
My time was 37:03 (7’25” pace). The race was a nice hilly course,
with very chilly air. I left my cotton running team shirt on over my
technical shirt the whole race.
My first two miles were run in the sub 7:10 range. Mile 4 had an
steady hill leading to the final turnaround.
The turnaround was 3/4 miles out, just below the crest of the hill. I
made the turnaround at a dead stop and wanted to curse the slight
uphill before the long gradual downhill towards the finish.
In the final stretch, 0.2 miles out, I passed the lead teammate and
pushed ahead, lungs burning, legs numb… and then it was over.
