...I can WIN any race I enter...
The race itself was a hard one for me. It was hot and I was tired and had a bad stitch at 2.5km. I decided not to worry about it and took it as an opportunity to just try and hold it all together when the body just wanted to stop. I did not use my Garmin and ran the whole way "time blind" and loving it. All that mattered was that I kept pushing forward trying to catch that 13 yr. old kid in the red shirt. I never quite caught him but it was fun trying. Funny thing but I was so taken up in racing that when I crossed the finish line I really was not that interested in what my time was. Imagine that, sounds impossible even to me.
My time was 21:46, a new course record; )
Just a little video of the proceedings. Please note that the 5km and 10km were ran together.
