Sunnybrook Park Thomass. Turned out to be a pretty nice morning for running, no freezing rain, which is what I thought we were in for. Big man dbegbie joined me for the drive, and we met frankj, in the parking lot... ok, once we got to the race parking lot I phoned frankj and helped him find it :)
A little chit chat, lots of thinking of other stuff while frankj was talking, then a whirlwind start. handed our maps, and someone yells go! I had hardly oriented mine! Good thing I'm such an expert.
So 10 minutes later I'm lost.
Sheesh, out of CP2 and onto the path, and for some idiotic reason only known to the creator him/herself, i turn the wrong way. So I pass dbegbie going the other way, say hi. So I pass frankj, say hi again. 30 seconds later I stop dead, why did i just pass frankj going the other way??? arghhhhh!!! so round I turn and fix my directional challenges, but lost 7-10 min. oh well, big mistake, but good learning experience. I put it down to lack of training, struggling with my jacket due to overheating because I wasn't in the shape I thought I was.
Both frankj and dbegbie had good races. Frankj completed his around 1:45, nice job!
Time to start training again, and get back on the wagon.
Oh, and dbegbie and I found a good climbing gym on way home, will check out and report.
