Not much to report, actually, about the race.
It went sort of like this................
Usual bizarre pre-race ritual. Woke up at 5:00am and watched COOL HAND LUKE(classic Paul Newman flick) and ate waffles with banna slices. Left the house at 7ish and ran to the race(5 miles). Got to the race at 7:45 and mozied on to the start line. Usual list of regulars were milling about. Race started and I ran my own race as I started out real slow and got stronger as the run went on. Two weeks after the Marine Corps I feel fine and am continuing to regain confidence in my hamstring(takes forever to heal). Anyway, the race kind of just went by. Most memorable moment was talking to Ryan Deak about his high-school exploits. After the race did an easy 4 or 5 mile cool-down. Not sure how long. Anyway, the grand total of miles for the day was approximatley 15 with 6.2 of it being a tempo.
Main focus is on some Spring marathon.
Legs finally feel really good, though. No limping or muscle problems that make me twinge, just tired. It has taken nearly one year for this butt/hamstring issue to die off.
Everyone else ran great. Nice to see Ben lacing em up.
Nice croud support from everyone. Dave O', I want your bike, where did you get it?
