I was disappointed with my time, but all things considered, it wasn't horrible. I LOVE RUNDMC! Andy S. Ben K. Peter A. Rebecca G. What an awesome group & it was awesome to finally meet! I also saw my friends Carrie, Carol, Don, Bro-in-law Herb. That made it even more fun! This was a humbling (because I suck at hills), tough little race...VERY VERY hilly, VERY windy. Started out w/ an 8:15 the first 2 miles then got a horrific cramp right mid gut/diaphragm for 3 miles. It went away around 5.5 & then I got my second wind & had a stronger finish w/ an 8:10 the last mile; too bad 4, 5 & 6 slowed me down; but with the hills & wind, I couldn't make up the lost time. I was hoping for an 8:30 pace, but all things considered, I'll take it. It's gonna take some time to get back to where I was this time last year.
