this result is about what i expected. i crashed hard at the end -- it was all in the legs. the course starts rolling around mile 8 and it exposed all of my weaknesses. i was passed by two women in the final three miles, and that was tough since i was already feeling weak and dejected. great weather though!
james and i ran another race in the afternoon -- the salt lake city challenge urban scavenger race. we had to run around downtown with 12 clues about different sites/events and take pictures next to each one. they were giving out $300 for first place, and we thought we might have a shot at it since we are familiar with both salt lake city and running.
we ended up taking third, but their scoring system was much too chaotic and arbitrary to really know for sure (maybe 4th? maybe 118th?). it's a fun concept, but logistically it was kind of a mess. 225 teams/1000+ people (in costume!) and everyone was frantic.
