Today, I ran the 2nd annual running of The Race 13.1. It’s hard not to be biased, but I think we did an even better job than last year. We had people from all over the country attend with registration 25% higher than last year.

I decided to race this year (last year I paced the 1:45 group). My next marathon is next month, and I wanted to used this race as a tuneup. The course is hilly, so it’s a good judge of fitness. I came in 4tho overall finishing behind two of my friends and another guy that I didn’t know.

I wanted to make the podium (top three), but I don’t count this as a failure because I was able to maintain a consistent pace on a difficult course.
