Thanks. It was was fun. Most of the time I just feel like I'm racing the clock.
Yes sir! First place and $50, you are professional runner now!!
Soup, reminds me of the time you nipped me at the finish of Springroll's 10k...
There's no substitute for winning a race outright. Doesn't happen too often for older guys. Savor it!
Unless you are competing at masters races. You're right, winning was great. But it was also very gratifying that it felt like I made the right decisions along the way, that is, not to charge up the big hill too fast, to gradually increase speed as the course started tilting the other way, and to make a move at what felt like the right moment. Of course, if I had come in 119th, (out of 15?, ha ha) I might be kicking myself for not trying to hit the initial big hill harder. A good training race.
