Saw the updated results, including split times. While not racing super hard, (not that if I did I would have won anything anyway), I was still curious about how I did.
43rd overall, 237 finishers. 13th out of 43 in age group.
Split times: 1st lap was 1:05:26. 2nd lap 1:04:24. 59th place after 1 lap, so I made up 16 spots on the 2nd lap. 32 people did a faster 2nd lap then me. I was 1 of 9 people who did a negative split.
I may not be all that smart, but (ignoring the not drinking enough fluids part) I think I ran a smart race. Excuse me while I pat myself on the back......
Bragging on my son - the kid makes me proud. Did the 8 mile race, took 17 1/2 minutes off his time from last year. Ran a 1:04:54, good for 18th place out of 312 finishers. He is 12. Next race that we run together is the Summer Roundup 12K trail race. Not that I plan on him beating me - I'm thinking he may be close.
