Blue70 Racing

Lots of Liquid Sunshine

First Race of the Year


Have done this race many times, with many course changes.  Usually dry and sometimes quite warm this time of year in Phoenix, this was the exception.  A winter storm came through and made for a very wet morning.  Rain started to let up between mile 5 and 6, but remained overcast and cool.  



Was feeling really strong in this race, and had a great split at the halfway point.  All went well until mile 21, and then the energy started to flag.  Suspect I should have jammed another gel, but didn't (lesson learned).  Still managed a decent finish, though not as fast as I would have liked.



On a side note, my daughter ran her first Half Marathon today too and had a very positive experience, despite the rain, and was able to achieve her goal time.
