Race recap and long drive home

Today I had the Irv Z. 3.5mile race. I have on and off days with this race. Today I would have to say time wise and the way I felt were on days!

Here are a few pics from the beginning of the race~

There is a nice few uphills in mile one and you do that loop twice.

The second time around you go further up the hill but you nicely go down hill for the next mile.

I was really trying to go easy the first mile with all those hills. In the past I have just gone out my normal pace and then died in the last mile.

I was able to complete the course with a 26:40 (7:37 pace for the 3.5miles). I felt great no pain in my shins and my bell handled the Chinese just fine! It was really muggy with no sun so my sunglasses stayed on my hat the whole time.

Hence this lovely post race pic!

I was going for the stand up straight look and show off my new Skinny Runner shirt!! But my sunglasses are messed up!

After the race I jumped into my car to make the 2hour drive to my parents house for Father's Day. Let's just say I was really tired at points! Though I had 2 potty stops and one food stop...Can you guess my post race JUNK??? (No cheating Hey Hey and Manda!)


Yea I know not smart... but I ALWAYS crave grease and sweets after a good race. Plus there is none of this at my folks place!

Awesome race Hey Hey, Dud, and Manda!!!

Have a great weekend all!
