This race doesn’t deserve a recap on my part. I’m not going to focus on the negative of this race. I’m just going to say that I’m glad I got a bad race out of the way before Peachtree in a few weeks. Thankfully, I had two great races back to back in the heat (Race The Landing #4 and Run the Runway). So this random horrible race will not bring my spirits down. It’s done, it’s over, I’m moving my focus onto Peachtree.
Let’s focus on the positive.
- I finished without fainting in the 100 degree weather
- I got to run with friends
- Lana and I had some special time afterwards having a beer and dinner together
- My training partner kicked ass
Lana had been out of town for a week, so I was happy to have her back and watch her crush it out there. She took 3rd overall female and got to bring home a fantastic prize box courtesy of Fleet Feet! This weeks post run happy hour was put on by Agave. My only complaint with this series is that the free beer is bud light. I’m sure there are tons of people out there who love it, it’s just not for me. However, I’m happy buying my own beer at these. There are lots of perks that come with the DI Happy Hour Series including the free beer, a finishers medal that is also a bottle opener, and a t-shirt.
Here are some fun pictures from this race!
My goal is that by the August race I can redeem myself from what atrocity happened on the race course.
