EMG - 6/17/12

edit: links to photos added below

So as I mentioned I tapered last week because I had a race this weekend.  This was the first in a four race series, a 5K last weekend, a 10K the weekend after TM, a 15K two months after that, and a half-marathon a month after that.  Top 10 finishers get points from 10 to 1 and at the end the finishers of all four races have their points tallied, and prizes are given to the top 3.

It was a very challenging, technical course with a 200 ft ascent over only about 300 yards half way through.  I did not perform as well as I wanted or as I am capable, but I still finished 5th overall and first in my age group with a time of 20:39.  I could definitely tell I have been training for a longer distance.  I was tired at the end, but recovered much faster than at my other races.
