Today was sooo much fun!! Last night, too, of course, but I'm just gonna recap this morning. :)
Quickly, did anyone who reads this blog hear about/experience the drama with the Hot Chocolate 15K yesterday? I was even training to run that race, but I changed my mind a month or so ago...and I'm pretty glad I did now!! Apparently they had all sorts of issues come up - the least of which being a car accident closing down lanes and preventing people from arriving at the venue on time. I guess a police escort also led the 5K racers the wrong way in the beginning which would have had them basically running into themselves at some point? Wowzas. Glad I changed my mind!
Anyway, the stats for my race:
Distance - 8K
Clock Time - 41:44
Chip Time - 41:31
Overall Place - 373 / 2264
Gender Place - 110 / 1370
Age Place - 16 (actually, 3-way tied for 14th) / 237
Pace - 8:21/M
The weather was perfect for racing. It was chilly at first and I was kind of concerned, but that sun came out and just warmed it up at a great rate and to a temp not too high. AWESOME. First things first, the outfit? Super cute...
