Had a great time at this race helping pace Kim to a massive PR finish time. When I first signed up for this race I was going to race it and shoot for sub 1:25 but then I signed up for Big Cottonwood Marathon next week and it seemed a lot smarter to not kill myself today. Turns out my Age Div placement (2nd) would have been the same either way since 1st place (Darin Cable) was sub 1:20. Nice to get 2nd place the easy way!
Kim ran very strong, I was nervous going out with the 1:35 pacers that it might be a bit too fast for her, but not to worry Kim hung with them for 9 miles or so then held onto to a decent pace on the harder last 3-4 miles to get the big PR.
Legs feel great after all the downhill, all the Payson runs this summer have certainly done the trick to give me Quads-Of-Steel. I'm looking forward to BCM next week. Just hope the temps drop a bit by then and wish I didn't have to run the last 8-10 miles down in the valley in the sun.
