Yow! First Race (5k) down! (Read 951 times)


Finished!

    Well, as you can see by my spiffy new avatar, I completed my first race Big grin I'm working on a proper race report (I'm supposed to blog it complete with photos of me all decked out in pink) Race results were *finally* updated to the site! Personal Goal: sub 35:00 Gun time: 35:19 Chip Time: 34:18 Pace: 11:03!!! Looks like they spit out placement based on guntime... out of a field of 638, I placed ~292 In my age group in a field of 88 contenders, I placed 48th according to gun time, but was 45th according to chip time Wink

      WOOHOOOOOOOOOOO WTG!!! Congrats on getting your first race under your belt!!

          Now that was a bath...

            Well done! Running all in pink - now there's a thought. I thought that they would use chip time! Surely chip time is more accurate, or am I wrong! I'm really nervous about my first race as it seems to me that i will find it harder pacing myself with other's around me. How did you find the experience? Claire xxx

              Yeah, about that pink - it was a fundraising gimmick - I never wear pink. Ever. So I sent a note to everyone I knew saying I'd wear pink for my first ever race (from head to toe) if I hit my fundraising goal....and if the strech goal was reached, I'd wear a tiara too - needless to say, I have lots of er...."helpful" friends Wink I was surprised the placement on the race results page was done by guntime as well - I was too lazy to figure out my real placement (tho I suppose it's easily enough done if I export the thing to excel) but I never expected to hit the front of the pack - nor to be at the end either as it was a run/walk... I'll have plenty to say about the whole ordeal in my race report nce I get it all out of my head Big grin

                    Congrats on your first race! Well done! Speaking of pink--at Boston this year there was a guy wearing all pink. Pink tutu, pink shoes, pink running shirt, a tiara, and a pink wand. And, he beat me (to the finish line, not with his wand).

                      Smile thanks! Goodness - all pink with a tutu and wand? I'll have to keep that to myself lest I get sucked into doing something like that again for fundraising LOL

                        Yes congrats on your race! Very cool. My 3-year old daughter would LOVE all the pink in your outfit! Smile Pron8r - This is funny and reminds me of a 5k I ran at Halloween. There was a guy running who was dressed as a mariachi player; complete with functional guitar. He nearly beat me. Furthermore -- I barely beat a guy dressed as a dinosaur -- he had a full-on oversized plushy costume and was carrying his tail the whole race. I thought if I don't run faster than a t-rex holding his tail I am going home sobbing! Big grin
