Running of the Trolls
Well, It was more like 5.25 miles so I finished in 40:08 (7:39 pace). I came in 3rd overall… out of 3. The rest of the participants were joggers or walkers. Only about 15-20 people overall. It’s really hard to keep up a competitive pace when you’re out there all alone (the #1 and #2 runners were way out ahead of me). There actually were some small – medium hills.
Overall it was great because I doubt I’ll ever be able to say again that I placed 3rd overall in a race! They had it measured wrong, though. Luckily I brought my GPS and it was really 5.25 miles. I’ve been strapping it up high on my arm so I can’t really see it while I’m running and I just run by feel. Luckily I get the final time and distance.
