Dusting off the bloggie and sharing my photos of this years Race to Robie Creek Half Marathon. This year was my 10th consecutive running of this half marathon race. This is a very short recap with only a couple pics instead of my usual photo dump for this race.
I don’t have too much to say about this years race. I was 10 minutes slower then what I wanted. I just could not get my legs to have any sort of speed.
The reasons for that is that I did no long distance training. My longest long runs were 6 and 7 miles at the end of FEBRUARY! And I did not run for the 3 weeks before the race. I will own my lack of training as reasons for my race results.
I was really hoping for better weather. Last year was cool and damp and it sucked being wet for 4 hours. This year had fresh snow fall the WEEK of the race.
The weather on race day was perfect, but there was still a lot of snow on the back side. I could not run at all. It was so icy and just starting to melt so there was a bit of slush on top of the ice. A few steps were pretty slippy. I went as fast downhill as I did up. That was disappointing.
I’m glad I am done with the race for another year. Next year will be my 11th Robie Creek. We will see what happens during that race.
Have you participated in a race in consecutive years? Which race and how long have you kept up the streak?
