Here is a twist on the usual race; instead of age group awards, have weight group awards. As we pick up our race number we step on a scale and get assigned to a weight class. Course is through urban/suburban Fircrest with one major hill. Warm and sunny day.
Mile 4 - On my time target for a sub 35 minute race but just barely. In a nice pack, a large pack for this late in the race. Stay with the pack, use them to help with pacing and holding on.
Finish - PR! and squeaked in just under 35. Very pleased with my time.
36th of 140 second place in weight group ribbon
