I have run this course twice before, and it is great for PRs, nice and flat and fast! My best time going in was 31:04 and I was determined to beat it! I blew off Packet Pickup last night, so I had to leave a little early this morning. Since the race start is only about 1.25 miles away, I rode my bike.
I had to stop on the bridge and take a pic! It was nice and cool, no breeze really, a little humid. I got my tee and bib and stashed what I didn't need in my bike basket. While I waited to start I listened to the bagpipers. I LOVE bagpipers!
As I approached the finish, the time said 31:30ish, but my Runtastic app said 30:41. It also said the course was almost 3.5 miles. It was actually more like 3.2 and my official time was 30:25! I actually beat last year's time by 40 seconds, and beat my friend Cheryl (for the first time ever) by 13 seconds! woot!
Tomorrow is the SuperHero Half, so excited about this one!
