Nothing much to say. I ran okay considering the fitness I'm in, so I'm positive about this race. Good temperature, but super windy which made for a tough day of running. Came into the run expecting to run anything between a 1:16-1:18 and was on the money with my guess. Just wanted to run a respectable time just in case anything bad happens during the next 3 races in the series. I'll get another crack at this course which I am looking forward to.
Finished 3rd overall, 45 seconds behind the winner, and 30 seconds behind 2nd. Not sad unless you consider that we were tied with about a mile and a half to go. Whoops. I'm not overtly surprised although. Upping the mileage and I should be fine in a month and a half.
Overall, it was a fun race. I think at one point all three of us ducked our heads down just to try to push through the wind which must have been a funny sight to see. I'm definitely happy I wore sunglasses, that's for sure.
Splits- 5:43, 5:55, 5:59, 5:38, 5:41, 5:47, 5:43, 5:57, 5:53, 5:53, 6:03, 6:30, 6:23, ~0:50ish finish.
