I did better than I thought!
389th place (of 1,205 overall)
163rd place (of 743 females)
68th place (of 222 females age 20-29)
I’m happy that:
- I was only 27 seconds off my goal time
- My pace was under 10 minutes/mile
- I finished before the end of the that Linkin Park song and didn’t have to finish Australian rap-style
I think if I can just increase my endurance so I don’t have to walk at all, I can easily break 30 next time. And if the next race has a flatter course (this one had three or four good inclines that left me huffing and puffing), it shouldn’t be a problem.
So tired now. Nap time!
