|Me and Amanda before the race|
|Me and ADP before the race (we were both in black this year...strange)|
Amanda and I were together for the first 1.75 miles and then Amanda pulled back and I went on without her (I hate it when this happens, but we have that understanding...if one is feeling good then by all means GO FER IT!). I went on and decided to push a little more for the last mile. I finished with garmin reading 2.96 miles (as compared to 3.11 last year and 3.05 the year before). I'm happy with my time and extremely pleased with my splits:
9:18/mi ave pace
mi 1: 9:34
mi 2: 9:21
mi 3: 8:37 (8:58 ave pace)
gotta love the negative splits!
This is a free race so as you finish you are handed a card in which you need to fill in your information and hand it in at the registration table. It also means there is no question as to what place you finished.
Once I filled in my info and handed my card in I headed back outside to watch ADP finish. He was almost a whole minute faster than last year!!
