Maybe the most miserable race I've ever run??? Cold, torrential rain, strong headwind. Suffering from hypothermia at the end. Pleased with time considering the conditions. I feel really bad for people on this blog who ran or are running the full.
My right knee and right hamstring were not cooperating after mile 5 and that kept me from pushing harder when my other body parts wanted to. I'll have to figure that out in future races this year. On a positive note, my hip felt great.
Splits - 6:28, 6:15, 6:08, 6:20, 5:55, 6:18, 6:24, 6:19, 6:06, 6:21, 6:25, 6:25, 6:39, .34
One more note. In the 2 years since I've run a serious road race people have started wearing these fat shoes that look like pancakes. I don't know how good they are but they look really slow and dorky.
