So I ran the Spectrum 10 K this morning and it was an eventful day to say the least and that had nothing to do with the race. I was a minute slower than last year mainly becuase I let a couple of miles get a way from me and I lost concentration. I felt pretty good for the most part but I realized going in that I hadn't had as much training as last year, mainly do to the hard winter and motivation issues, but I still surprised myself.
My mile splits went like this:
1.6:57 Downhill big time
2. 7:20 lost it a little here for some reason.
3. 7:02 back on track.
4. 7:09 still ok.
5. 7:37 another hard to explain mile, lost concentration again!
6. 7:29 still a little out of it.
.20 1:19 better average pace for this was 6:27 so I was basically giving it all I had.
Miles 2, 5, 6 were hard to explain, I just can't figure out what happened on those. Oh well, I still feel like I had a good race even though the time was slower, but hey I qualified for the SGM so all is good. It seemes like the course was a little long but I could be wrong... 6.20 even on my watch. My average pace was 7:14
So after the race I go to get my truck key, GONE, no where to be found! So we head back up to the start and can't see anything there, so then I call the Dodge dealership and they hook me up with a guy who can get me a knew one but they want a fortune! So while I was waiting for that guy to show up, I don't ever think he was actually coming, I realized that I hadn't left me phone number with anybody in case it gets turned in. So, I send an e-mail to Aaron and low in behold with in a couple of minutes he calls me and says he has my key! Thank the lord! So I ended up getting home about three hours later than I was suppose to. Thank you to who ever turned that darn thing in, I guess someone picked it up on the trail. I'm surprised I didn't hear it drop, this was the one race that I didn't have music in my ear. Go figure! Thanks to My Brother Curtis and Nephew Bryan for helping me look and carting me around all over, without them I don't know where I would have been!
See ya Monday.
