Near perfect running conditions! It was probably around 55ish degrees at the start and maybe 65ish at the end. I feel like I did a good job, and not only that but I really felt like I gave it pretty much all I had. I stared out to fast, going with the group you know, my first mile was 10:14, and then they got slower from there. This biggest problem I had was I had to go to the bathroom. I went right before the race, but obviously I had to much coffee or something... the last 3 miles and especially the last mile was torture, I truly was not sure I was going to make it. Every bush I passed I looked at with longing, and had there not been quite a few people around me I so would have used them. Not one bathroom the whole run. Have you ever tried to run with your legs crossed...it's not easy. Explaining why my last mile was 13:35. But my average according to my Garmin, (results will be posted later today) 12:02 with a finish time of 1:13:53! Yea!!! I beat 1:15!! WooHoo!!!
Now the only issues I had (besides that bathroom thing. ) I was getting the goose bumps during the last mileish...why is that...dehydration ? Did it during the triathlon too. I will have to google.. And after the race when I was stretching, my left calf kept wanting to cramp up. Did that the other day too. Hmm...more potassium?
