I'm not proud of the race. I finished under 30 minutes (which was my goal--actually my goal was not to die, but 2 for 2 is good for me), but I ran the course a whole minute faster when I did a test run last week. It just wasn't a good running day for me. I think my final shame came when I was passed by a speed walker....A SPEED WALKER!!!! Classic speed walker, too -- with the hips moving, arms swinging ready for take off.
Oh well...I'll just have to run another one so I can prove to myself that I can in fact beat a speed walker.
Here are some pics for your enjoyment.
