I placed 4th out of 12 in my age group, and 8th woman overall. Not so bad I guess.
Comparing times to last year it would seem the majority of runners were 1:30 - 3:00 slower this year compared to previous years. I already pretty much knew the course conditions were a huge contributor to my 50 seconds slower, but it's kind of nice to know that it affected many others by at least this much too.
The next race is Feb 6th and I know that course will definitely have good conditions. We'll see what I bring to that one.
Yesterday I took a rest day. My legs were definitely tired from the race. Also, my son had a soccer game last night that was awesome so I'm glad I didn't miss it. I'm sure going to be sad when he's not playing next year. :(
On another note ... does anyone know if the sun still exists? Or has it become extinct? I've seen nothing but gray since I don't know when. YUCK!
