I left home at 6:45. My husband decided it was to cold to spectate, and he stayed home. (Cant say I blame him!!!)
My brother has run this race many times in the past, so he 'showed me the way'. I wouldve gotten so lost!!
The start was a bit confusing. We all congregated on the road, and all the sudden we heard a gun. I looked at my friends, and we wondered if that was the start, or if that was a hunter in the woods. The people in front of us started moving so we followed. There was no start line, so I wasnt sure when to start my Garmin. This was the first time Ive run in temps below freezing. The first half mile my lungs hurt!! I looked at my watch and it was saying 10.20 . HA time to slow down!!! That is not my pace!!
The first 1.5 mile was up a gentle slope. Which was great because the return was down hill.
MR B wanted a sub 30 so bad!! He ended up with a 30.3.
Im so thankful the sun was shining and there was no breeze!!
I enjoyed this run, and realized even at 30 degrees, you still sweat when you run!! (OK yeah, I already knew that).
