15K of Brutality
Tuesday, September 04, 2012
Did the Larry Noel 15K yesterday in lovely Greenbelt MD. At the unusual time of 5pm for the start, it was 84F - ouch. The humidity was on its way up to 94 as we stood around sweating before the race even began.
Had I known what was in store, I would have gone out slower. Or stayed home.
Hill after hill after hill. I was totally blitzed at the end. Actually, I was blitzed well before the end. (The last finisher was crying as she crossed the line. And they weren't tears of joy. I know how she felt.)
My buds are now assuring me that an upcoming *flat* 20M is easier than that *hilly* 15K. Is such a thing possible?
