So I really planned to jog this race today and to ensure that I did everything wrong in the previous 24 hours...
1. Lifted weights the day before for the first time in months so I would be really sore on race day.
2. Went to a cross country meet all day on Saturday and ran miles up and down the hills at Soldier Hollow screaming at my runners.
3. Ate a huge lunch at Tarahumara in Midway of Carne Asada and cherry pie. Probably about 3000 calories
4. Did no warm-up at all.
5. Wore my bathing suit to race in.
So all I did was finish fifth overall in a PR time for me on this course.
Mile splits: 5:18, 5:02, 4:59, 4:50, 4:42
Steve Anderson finished second overall in something like 22:30. Unbelievable! Had a great time as usual staying overnite at the Fabulous Alta Peruvian Lodge with a lot of other runners and their families. Watching football, swimming, and draining the keg.
oops... just checked my race report from last year - not a PR, 5 seconds slower this year.
