Congrats! Still a good run, even if it was not to your expectations.
Thanks. I didn't go out too fast, and had a kick at the end...some good things. Just didn't have the legs today, as the pro cyclists say.
a 5:50 sounds pretty good to me . . . but I understand it's all about expectations.
yeah, the time was pretty screwy. billy said the timer at the half mile split was adjusting the clock as he ran by, presumably to match the clock on the back of the lead vehicle, which means billy didn't get his split, doh.
at least the adjustments went in the right direction! my perception was I was going faster than the time indicated at the split, even given gun vs chip time.
yeah, me too. I saw the split, 2:57, and thought how the heck did that happen, i better get going. was hoping to be at 2:50 at that point. But if the final time was accurate, that split doesn't sound that far off, given the downhill and kick to finish.
