Having just ran Way Too Cool 50K a couple of days ago, I am in recovery mode today, but I will still do this race to continue my streak.
I decided I would try and race walk and see what I have in me. Unfortunately, I did not double-knot my shoes and my shoes came untied about a 1/2 mile in. Having to stop and tie my shoes mid-race is not exactly conducive to having a fast time.
However, I managed to finish in 32:48, my second best time ever (and only barely came in behind my friend Michael Pendleton who ran past me (when you race walk, there is no possible “run past”). Pretty good result.
