      Scotty, I decided to develop "Scotty adjusted timing" for your race reports.  I take 10 seconds off your time for every awesome picture you put into a race report.  I figure you ran about a 23 minute 5K.  Big grin

       

      Congrats on another awesome race and report!

        23 minutes...yer funny...Big grin...they'd have to scrape me off the road if I tried to run that pace.

         

        Liz:  my all time high was 73 races done last year.  However, if I am able to do all the races I registered for through the end of this year, I will finish this year with 75 races done.

          Looks like another great race, and cute awards!  Congrats on the AG award, but too bad you missed the win there!  I wonder if you pushed that guy to a new PR?

              Wonderful!

               

              I have been reading your RRs for a year now.  Today was the first time this thought occurred to me:  For your sake, it's a good thing it is a digital age.  Can you imagine how much money you must be saving by not having to process film?!

                      Congrats on a 2nd place in your AG, but don't you sometimes wish spectators wouldn't cheer so much like that?

                      2014 Goals: Run first trail ultra, first 100K, and see what I can do in a 24-Hour race

                        Great race! Congratulations on 2nd place AG and to your friend on being 1st in his AG! I loved seeing the Chritsmas atmosphere, even though you're definitely lacking the snow element :-), I feel like installing the white lights on our trees outside, after looking at your pictures. :-) The sky was very gray, but the temps were good for running. I'm glad you had another great race day, Scotty!
