2014? Well I guess we'll see how it goes...obviously my goal would be to go below 28 minutes, and I'm gonna shoot for that. I sure as shit can't shave as much off as I did last year, that was nuts...but a realistic goal is 27:59, and I better get a game plan together this week!
Here's a short video about Kerri, and the history of the race:
Monday, 7-28 - 3 Miles. Watch Hill, RI. After karate class, I ended up in Watch Hill. I knew that the hill going up to the Ocean House was a popular segment, as it's on the Surftown 1/2 route at mile 11, and lots of people run in W.H. anyway. FiveK holds the CR in a blazing 50 seconds, followed by the Gazelle and Johnny Winter (aka Mike B). I ain't that speedy, but I knew I could do a bit better than my best time. Started by running past the old carousel, and out to the lighthouse:
Ms. Swift's palace...top of the giant breakwater
Watch Hill lighthouse!
Then looped around W.H., and gave the hill a snappy effort around mile 2.5. I was moving pretty good, and may have slowed up too soon at the top...but I still managed a decent time, and I'll give it another go soon, it's so damned scenic down there...
