    I wanted that PR bad. Just barely made it.

      This thread is full of win.

      I have no finish pics. I elude the finish line, like a cat eludes water.

        This is what 2:58:38 looks like.

         

         

        I wanted that PR bad. Just barely made it.

         That looks a lot more badass than your "before" picture in another thread.  Big grin

          Saw this picture of me from my recent local 14K club race and thought of this thread.  It looks like I was about to cry.  My eyes were on the finish line for sure. The wind was blowing hard and was actually a tail wind there at the finish, but it was brutal out on the gravel/dirt roads during the middle of the race.

          Here's a picture one of the volunteers took during the race as one of the first runners came through at about mile 7.  Fun day for a race, winds were gusting to 38mph at the finish.  Running into the wind on that dirt road was sheer joy.

            Looks brutal. Joking

            Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

              Looks like the dust bowl days are returning

                The last Race I finished.  a Fun, afternoon 5k after doing a 12 mile training run that morning.

                  (The story behind it is he finished the race and went to pace a friend, but didn't want to cross the finish line twice.)

                  Bring it on.

                    This was very close to the finish. I couldn't see the seconds column on my watch but knew that I was at 3:54:XX with a goal of sub 3:55.

                    (finished in 3:54:51)
