A beautiful day! I was worried it would be cold or rainy, but it turned out perfect. I'd recruited Melanie to run with me when I was going to push Reese, but that couldn't happen so she had to run with me anyway! It was nice to have pacing company!
We got there and picked up packets, I gave shoes to Rendi and we took some pictures and then we were off. We had a good group and Paul started with us! That course is kind of a bugger with the twists and turns and ups and downs...the hills never end! But, thankfully a 1:55 pace was just what the doctor ordered for me.
We lost Paul and another guy Matt that we had picked up around mile 10...we then grabbed Jeff who was struggling with calf issues. We were able to finish with a perfect cushion and then cheered in the guys as they trickled in. All of them made it in under 2:00, so I guess that is a successful race? Or maybe just good pacing :)
We left shortly after since we both needed to be back (Mel had left her kids at home alone) so I got back to the gym in time to do boxing and technique. But, they changed it to ju jitsu technique and well...I don't really like it. Grappling is fun and all, but I want boxing. I want a sweaty workout on my own punching and dodging punches. Cyle made me love boxing and now I feel like it has been ripped away...sigh.
