Chris D was out on the 25K course cheering and snapping photos on Sunday. He's the speedy hubby of speedy Jenna B who finished the 25K as the 2nd female in 1:30 (BREAKING an 18-year-old State Record for 35-year-old females by 3 minutes!) and who came across with a 13.1 split of 1:16. Speedy couple!
Anyway, Chris got a few photos of me at work as I was wrapping up the first big loop around both lakes (around the 10K point):
Running with a Roctane Gel in-hand.
"Hey... who's taking photos?...."
"... Oh HI Chris!"
Running to the start of the 2nd loop.
After looping around Harriet for the 2nd of 3 times (around the 8-9 mile mark), Chris saw me again:
Looking a little more pained, but my form still looks OK! (Just a little hip drop.)
Oh, and I took that Roctane about a half mile later at an aid station.
Remember THIS POST where I tried to show that I race longer races best with even splits? (If you missed my post about "graphing your splits," make sure to check it out here.) Well, I had to just "nerd out" and graph my splits in the 25K to see how they looked:
