Good race. They do a great job organizing this race. My pacing was better and I made my goal.
The race course is not strictly flat there are some rolling hills to keep you honest and make you work. A shower cooled down the air some, but it was still muggy and warm.
Started out with the leaders and then after half a mile let them slip further ahead. I would never have been able to pace with them. I just use them to establish my initial pace. I kept them in site most of the race. Started at a good pace and managed to not lose too much on the last miles. I was passed a few times late in the race.
By the numbers:16th overall 3rd in age group
7. 1:28 Last .2
42:22 total 6:50 per mile
Posting a goal really motivates me to achieve it. Nothing like making a goal public to hold your feet to the fire.
Jesse Owens is a great race and I hope to run it next year. They give real trophies and a glass mug to finishers.
