Sprint at Miami Unv--Hamilton campus and vicinity. Only the last four controls on Brown were actually what I would call campus sprinting;the rest was wooded areas or open fields. Interesting course design.
2.1 km with negligible climb. I think Steve Tarry was fastest on the course, in 18:10. Natalia was under 20 minutes, and Sharon a bit over 21, so I was very pleased where I stood especially since I wasn't sure if I'd be able to run at all. My knee was achy but not painfully sore. Got advice to take antiinflammatories for two weeks to see if that makes the flare up recede, and news of possible new drug development for this type of joint pain. ;-) I will try the regimen to see if it helps, as long as my stomach tolerates it.
10/33 on this Brown course; 2/6 in F60. Ursula Goeres from Canada is a bit faster runner but she had a bad control in the middle of the course.
Interesting to see how the F20 class shakes out among three very competitive young women in AdventureGirl!, Julia D (BAOC), and Izzy. There are only three F21s at this meet.
