The Streak

It is my displeasure to report that the streak of Raytheon running team corporate victories at the Army 10 miler has been broken. Today, the team came in 2nd to a new company IR4G which is short for I run for god. I was hoping to go through my entire career with victories at this race because I thought we had the team to do it. A story as old as time itself, an aging team disposed of by a younger team. Still doesn't feel too good.

My race went ok. I was really hoping for 52:30 but 53:10 will have to do. I was just down too much material from work and lack of workouts.

The first few miles felt a lot more labored than they should have for the part of the course and the fitness I thought I have. But they didn't, so I don't, and therefore will have to reevaluate where I think I am. The new finish over the last mile was not fun. Three chicanes with two little bridges to climb made the momentum hard to keep.

I hope to have some pictures tomorrow.

That's all I got.
