I really wasn't ready for this race, but I had a chance to get a last minute registration and knew I would be able to see RAD, so why not?
My goal was 10:00 pace- to finish in 2:10. I had a good strong start trying to catch up to the 2:10 pace group and I let the momentum take me on. After the downhill mile, my pace slowed down considerably but I was able to finish with a 9:42 pace (according to my garmin). I haven't checked the official time yet.
When I knew I was close to a 9:40 pace, I really wanted to go faster than 9:40 because I needed to show Burt I was really a winner. I guess we know who the real winner is, but I'm not admitting defeat yet.
Great time with RAD and crew- we enjoyed lunch, visiting snow canyon, donuts, and pizza.... oh yeah- ice cream shakes too. Looking forward to more runs out here in the west.
