This one was rough. Not sure why but it didn't go as well as the 5k and 10k from prior weeks. Maybe because we got there a little late ... or rather we got there on time but we ended up standing in the porta-potty line for almost 10 minutes at the start. Good thing this is chip-timed because by the time we were both done and got to the start line, it had started about 8 minutes before and we were having to weave through walkers to find a good pace.
I knew a little more of what to expect with this one and was pretty much dreading the entire portion of Iroquois Park/Mountain. I think I'm going to have to work on hills before next year's race. That's all there is to it.
Ran a large portion of this one with Matt. I don't know if I was slowing him down or encouraging him to run more but it was nice to be with him and chat along the way while we ran and walked (mostly ran).
No PR on this race. This year's result was 1:59:20 compared to last year's result of 1:56:29. Definitely going to have to work on that before next year. Definitely.
