Well, we got another team together this year and did the Lake to Lake Relay. We had Steve, James, Clyde, Bill, and myself. I was pretty nervous coming into the race, because I'm out of shape and I was worried about the pain that comes with running fast. I ran leg 2 which was a good 5.1 miles with a few rolls. I started off about 2 min behind 1st place and probably a minute behind 2nd.
I quickly got the 2nd place run, but wasn't able to catch Ross Decker, but I did close the gap to 1 min down.
1-5:34 Wow I'm going fast again, as Ricky Bobby would say.
2-6:20 Short hill climb this mile
3-5:45 Good mile, feeling good but starting to over heat.
4-5:58 Another fairly flat mile
5-6:31 Gradual hill climb
31:16- 6:01 average
This leg was fairly flat for about 3.5 miles with maybe a little bit of climbing the last mile. However, I was spent from my first leg and I really struggle on this leg. Good thing we had a nice lead by this time. I just felt bad I didn't run faster
3-6:49 really struggling
4-6:56 I was actually feeling a little better by this part, but now I was climbing the hill on Riverside Drive
29:26- 6:37 average
Anyway, we had a pretty interesting finish as team Decker was able to make a great comeback. Fortunately for us, we had Clyde who was able to come back and secure the win for us. All in all it was a fun race. I just need to get back in shape. I felt great the first leg, but didn't have anything left for my second leg.
