Boxer loses 10 lbs. in 2 days to get down to 165, and wins!!! WOO HOO!!! Must be nice being young.
So anyway...................wait I am changing my Title..
Man was that a hard course. Are you kidding me?? We start off up a hill. I say something to the effect like ohhhh that will get your heart-rate up. A girl says just wait. Then she falls over her feet. YIKES!! We get up that hill, and I see another 800 Meter hill. Before the climb of that hill there is a turnoff for the 5K. Boy did that look inviting. So that 800 M hill is just one in a long line of 9.375 miles of hills.
I don't feel like blogging today, so keeping it short. I pick up the effort, at mile 5, but not necessarily the speed. (against the wind) I thought of trying to draft off a girl ahead of me, but she was too small, and I felt strong. I went on my own, and took the wind. I eventually caught up to Jerry at the 8-something mile mark, and kicked it with a 1/2 mile left. (The only non-hill section) :)
Jim, beat me by 4 minutes. :) Told you he was strong. :)
Kudos to the two 80 year old guys duking it out under a 10 min/mile pace. How GREAT is that??
Gayle won the Masters women. Of course!! No one around here can touch her. She isn't even in top form yet.
My pace was 8:05. On a regular course I think it would be 7:40. That is how hard it was. I didn't tell Jim, because I didn't want to put pressure on him. He was 7:39 pace. I am thinking 7:20'ish for Boston. Not bad for someone over 55. :)
Slept most of the day. Went to hang out with some friends, and slept over there. Hope they enjoyed my conversation. :)
