Scenes From a Race
Our own unofficial kids' race
Finn celebrates cracking 17 for 5K
Our not so young hero brings home 6th place
By the way, Kiera took all the pics. She always does, but I often forget to give her credit. She seldom forgets to remind me.
The results tell the tale. 6th place, 35:23, 6th place overall. I stayed in contact as best I could on the winding uphill, and I did manage to close in on 4th and 5th, but in the end I just held my place from about mile 3. This was a fun and difficult race on undulating terrain and through six water crossings. The fact that I was able to run the same pace as I did for a flat 10K in January is encouraging, but those guys in front of me just seem to be getting stronger and stronger.
Training: 3/9 pm., 10 miles w/6.4 mile race
3/4, 16.5 miles, 1h58m, 7:14 with a bunch of hills
Miles for the week: 86 in 9 sessions, not bad
