The RaceThis race is more of an organized fun run. Everyone gets a medal and they all say "Winner". I won. I beat everyone behind me. OK, I did run pretty strong and there were a bunch of folks behind me. But, judging about appearances, there were few strong runners toeing the line. It was fun and I had a great run including a last mile at a faster than 8 minute a mile pace which is awesome for me. There were more people in the race than I expected. which did help the atmosphere feel more like a race. The course was essentially and out and back on a airstrip with a double loop diversion in the middle as described and videoed in these links created by people that are more descriptive that I:
The weather was beautiful. I ran strong and only regret that I let some clown pass me 10 inches before the finish line. He wouldn't have if I had known he was coming! I had done 3 workouts the day before, so I was a bit surprised I was so strong during this race.
