Blueseventy Racing

A PR!!

The only goal I had for this year was to run near what I did last year (1:16:40 - my 2nd fastest time on the course). But I ran FASTER! A PR for the course and at age 69, no less!

This course runs uphill for the first half. Starts at 27' elevation and maxes out at 502' at 4 miles. Mile 3.3 to mile 4 is very steep - 150' elevation gain. The next 2.5 miles are predominantly downhill (a couple small inclines), so I really pushed it - I love downhills! There was another inclinde for the next mile (maybe 80') and then a 200' decline to the finish, where I tried to keep pushing - especially when I realized I was close to breaking 1:16 smiley
