Tuesday night was the Chase Corporate Challenge… I was the captain for Team Staples, and was anticipating meeting a bunch of new people from the sales offices, and stores. Thanks to the weather – which turned out to be fine until the race was pretty much over – most of my team bailed. We still managed to have a team of 4 though, and the 3 that showed up were awesome people. I also saw a ton of people I knew, and went to the start with a bunch of running buddies.
Here’s my results:
20th female overall – out of 4,653
232 overall – out of 8,746
3.5 miles in 24:13 (6:55 min/mile)
Last year I managed a 23:38 in this race…. does marathon running make you slower? Im starting to think so, at least in these short races! And I dunno if its the faster running or what that is causing a side stitch…. but it keeps happening after about a mile and 1/2.
Tomorrow Is the Sehgahunda Trail Marathon and Relay. Im doing the 2 person relay. We decided to switch on and off, so Im running Leg 1, and 3. And my running buddy Tim is running Leg 2 and 4. I’ll end up running a total of 12.6 miles. Last year I ran Legs 1 & 2 back to back…. and it was a disaster. I made these pretty awesome signs to stick somewhere on us…. We are the – Super Sehga Sonic All-Star Racers!
