Having recently returning from vaca I wanted the easiest leg. I was going to run the 2nd leg which was the 3.7 but after doing some strategy we decided to have me anchor....I was fine with this since it was 4 miles. I felt that I could do that and wanted 30:00 which would be 7:30's.
We got to the shuttle area around 7:00 and caught the shuttle to the starting area. Since there were 5 teams I had 4 other people to talk to while I waited 2 hours before I ran! That was boring so next time maybe I will do the first leg. The transition went smoothly and I was off.
This was a great race for me! I ran a 7:14, 6:55, 6:49 and wait for it....8:40 Since the first 3 miles were mostly downhill my legs started cramping Big Time! They just didn't feel strong. I tried to be mentally tough but it was so hard and by now it was getting hot. So I did finish with a 29:39 which was faster than my goal time yeah!!! Our relay team was 4th overall and 2nd all female. Our half time was 1:38. In the future I think this should be my "spring" half. I think I could do pretty well if I trained correctly.
