Consistently Slow

    I just ran my first race in a looooong time: the Big Gay Race 5K in Minneapolis. Ran with a friend who's much faster than I am when she's in shape, but she hasn't run in months. I committed to sticking with her. Turns out, I'm pretty sure I could've PR'd if I hadn't. I ran the first mile well under my PR pace and felt strong. She needed to walk, though.

     

    It was a long course, so 3.46 miles in 41:29, by my TomTom. HR 159/184. I'm happy with it.

    Congrats!

    Run until the trail runs out.

          WOW! That's an amazing feat, Ron. Wow.  122 miles. 60 hours. Congrats. That's so impressive. I don't know about anyone else but I want to know more about your experience. Did I say wow?

            Miles for Maria 6 hour 5:23:30 for 26.65 miles. I stop at the marathon distance. I was standing at the finish line taking pictures. The RD told me  I was in1st place with a 2 lap lead, The laps were 0.65 miles or 1.04km. The clock had 14:30 left before 6 hours. I did 1 more lap because he would need to run close to a 11:30 pace.
