Pikes Peak Ascent

3:00:50 13.3 miles
49th overall 13th age group
Not a great race but it was fun. First time doing the ascent instead
of the marathon. Glad I only did the ascent this year. Training has
been up and down this year. Look forward to getting back at it.
Was a pr but not by much and my previous best was in the
marathon portion of the ascent so not really comparable. Good
news was my girl friend B had a pr of 19 minutes!!! I enjoyed
seeing her finish and doing so well.
Watched the marathon today and really was wishing I was doing it.
Hard to watch races for me. It was great though as I saw many
friends and most had awesome races. Look forward to next year
already. Undecided if I will go back to the marathon distance or
stick to the ascent. Plenty of time for that.
