I went into this race thinking of it as “training run” and decided to take it nice and easy! I started out running with the lead men, and soon started running with another fast female . Since I was treating it as nothing more than I training run, I decided to run with her and try to enjoy the day. However, as the race progressed she began to struggle, and after staying with her through a few rough patches I decided to surge forward and take the lead. In the last 10km of the race I passed 3 men, and took 1st place female, finishing 30mins ahead of 2nd place (the female I had been running with)
You know those days when everything clicks, and then starts to fall apart? This was one of those races! The day started out smoothly and I settled into pace with the lead group with 2 other men. We ran what I like to call a “comfortably uncomfortable” pace to start. This pace quickly picked up and it seemed as though we were each pushing one another. By the 30km I was seriously hurting, and started to notice a sharp pain in my hamstring, however being only 20k from the finish and with such a sizable lead over the 2nd place female I decided to push forward and just live with the pain. I must say, the last 10k were extremely painful, and I was reduced to limp-run! IT WAS ALL WORTH IT!! I ended up 1st place female, 2nd overall and I broke the female course record by 1hr and 10 mins.
