I preregistered for 9 races in the last two races. I have to 2 more that I am waiting for the form to be sent out. Normally I am a race day sign upper, but since becoming a race director I have learned just how important signing up early is for planning. That and I like to get a shirt, preferably in the right size.
This Saturday I went to Kittanning's YMCA Big Foot Half Marathon. This was my 4th race there. The race director and her volunteers (they might be paid, I don't know) are awesome! Never any problems and I always medal. I wish all of the races could go this smooth.
This was a trail race like Yough Trail, but on the Allegheny River. I went out too fast. I really wanted to get a PR this time. I came close. I finished in 1:45:45. My PR is 1:44:57. I have another half marathon in 2 weeks so maybe then.
I think doing a half 3 weeks after a full, plus the other 2 races I did was too much. My left leg is killing me. A lot of pain in the lower front right now. Hopefully a good nights rest will fix some of it.
Sara finished in 2:02:14
Scott S from up north somewhere finishing. Sorry about the finger.
Cool to get my first green race shirt, but I thought "Big Foot" meant the monster, not a Big Foot...opps
