Happy Fourth!

Today has been a great day! Despite only being enabled to run 1 race, I decided to run both Summerfest races this morning. I was going to run the 3 mile race regardless, and enabled myself for the 5 mile race. See, I was going to have to wait until after the 5 mile race for awards, and I was going to have to run close to 5 miles afterwards anyway, so it just made sense to run the second race.

The Summerfest races were really nice. They had a 45 minute gap between the starts of the 2 races so that us crazy people could do both. I think the race director said there were 7 of us.

Anyway, I am the coolest. Check it out!

3 mile race - 8:30 AM
1 | 6:52
2 | 6:45 | 13:38
3 | 6:44 | 20:22*

avg. 6:47/mi
2nd female; 27th OA
1st 20-29F
* in the race results, I'm listed as 20:17, but my watch read 20:22. The 28th OA finisher has a time of 20:22, so I'm thinking that our places got switched. I thought the 20:17 seemed believable, since I felt like I increased my pace by more than 1 second from the 2nd mile, but after seeing the full results I think I should go with what my watch said. Plus I'm not sure how I would've added 5 seconds.

5 mile race - 9:15 AM
1 | 6:48 (obviously still thought I was running the 3mi race)
2 | 7:02 | 13:51
3 | 7:21 | 21:12
4 | 7:21 | 28:33
5 | 6:56 | 35:30 (let's get this over with!)

avg. 7:06/mi.
9th female, 31st OA
3rd 20-29F
