Running race 34:10  8.0 km (4:16 / km)
Buffalo Shamrock Run - my 22nd consecutive edition. I'm still quite slow on the roads, despite my increased training. I did manage to run about 20 seconds faster than the last 2 years, despite the windy conditions today. Paul Persia caught me just before the unmarked mile mark, and commented that it was just like old times, but in old times we were running over a minute per mile faster (back when I thought he was old because he was over 40). We were close until I was able to maintain the pace before the 4-mile mark, and he faded just a bit.
The missing mile mark means that I can's see quite how balanced my splits were. I was 13:40.44 at 2 (I'm guessing it was via 6:45 and 6:55). Mile 3 was 7:00.89 (but included the windy stretch along the lake), Mile 4 was 6:51.14 and the last almost-mile was 6:37.53, aided by getting 3 people on the finishing kick. Couldn't stop for the chip collector on the first pass, or I would have tossed some cookies at them, so I think I put in an honest effort (which is depressing, given the time).
Ryan O'Connor got the victory, taking care of the Edinboro boys that made the trip (Dan is injured, so he was just spectating).
Running warm up/down 20:00  2.35 mi (8:31 / mi)
Did a mile w/up, then jogged to the start.
After the race, I ran backwards, but didn't spot Walt, so I ended up running back to our car (near the 4-mile mark)
