My girl Teresa fueling!!
Teresa, Sherrie, and me ready to race!
Me finishing!! I'm blurry! (that must mean I was going fast)
- Mile 1 - WHAT!?!? I can't be-LIEVE I went that fast in a race for an entire mile. I felt really great that mile.
- Mile 2 - still very quick and feeling GREAT. That speed work is paying off!
- And then I faded. It could have been the massive hill. Or the fact that the longest amount of speedwork was 1.5 miles.
All finished and sweaty!
Teresa placed 3rd with a screaming time of 51:20!!!!
Final time for me: 58:42. 18th in AG. (avg 9:23 pace)
More speedwork = faster me!! On to the next race!
