OHAI 5:30am. The race took off at 6:30 to avoid the hottest part of the day. This is the view of the river from the clubhouse deck. It was gorgeous.
Look at how beautiful it was! This was a rare flat spot in the course. We were mostly running uphill and downhill over the course.
I made it to the finish. . .
. . .after running up this huge hill. This was SO HARD. The race coordinator told us to save some strength for the last 3 miles and he wasn't kidding. The last 3 took me probably 50 minutes. It was intense.
I always look like a hot mess after a run. And I got photobombed. I finished the run in about 2:50, which is about where I've been the last several runs, but much slower than what I'm capable of. I should be running at least 20 minutes faster over 13 miles. Oh well.
T-shirt, finisher's medal and number. Woot!
I like the logo of the race. The coordinator made mention of doing some other runs at different golf courses and I think that would be awesome.
