Seven, Wet, and 9:10 minute Mile
It was the Denver Marathon Relay yesterday. It was raining, it was 43 degrees, it was 7.1 miles, and it was awesome! It was by far my best race. I averaged a 9 minute mile and the race was easy until the last .5. And that is all mental. I am convinced that these races, no matter the distance, is all mental. You just have to psych yourself out. It rained all day. I was the 4th and last leg of the relay team. My team consisted of Mike, Sam, another Mike, then me. Having never done a relay, I did not know what to expect or how to really do it, but it made sense one i showed up. I peed like, 4 times before I took the "wand" from mike, more like a computer chip thingy. It kicked ass. My leg started in Wash Park and ended at the end of the race in Civic Center Park. Wish I had a picture. I think now I just need to go shopping for some better running clothes.
