Default Woohoo! I did it

6.27 miles in 54.46 = 8.44 min/mile!
4th in my age group and ~90th in out of roughly 300. It was a perfect day: 55 degrees, sunny, no wind, and lots of cheerful people.

Thanks HC for the warm up tips, they were very helpful and got me off to a great start.

I'll pick up the local paper tomorrow which will have all of the detailed info. I suspect that I was no where close to the 3rd place finisher in my group, I usually look for them. Since I almost always have enough gas in the tank for a final kick (today 7:35 min/mile for the last 0.25 mile) I do tend to hone in on the competition, but I didn't see any other old timers in the lanes.

So how'd you do SW?

OK... what's next? Maybe a half in Feb???
