My first official race post hip-replacement.
The weather was perfect: 55-60F and the trails were dry.
Very hilly, about 1000' of climbing, according to Mr. Garmin.
Cinco del Mayo so a Mexican band!
The crowd at the start:
Me and running friend Gail...she told me about this race:
I took a wrong turn and actually ran one loop of the race twice, racking up 6.9 miles instead of 6.2.......pace around 11:30-ish (some time spent head scratching ;)
Operative leg and hip felt great! Still out of shape (especially for hill running) but almost perfect 50-50 left/right ground contact time the entire race: the right leg is getting stronger.
Next up: a half marathon.
