Three races in three weekends, one AG 1st

Posted in Race reports by tahughesnc on April 26, 2010

Hola, amigos. I know it’s been a long time since I rapped at ya, but I’ve been racing my ass off lately.

First, I did the Tar Heel 10 Miler on Saturday, April 10. First time I’ve done that race, and it was a lot of fun. Finished with a chip time of 01:12:46.11, which was a 7:16 pace, good enough for #100 of 1,369 and #13 of 103 in the male 40-44 age group.

Then I did the Charlottesville Half Marathon one week later, on April 17. First time I’ve done that race, too. Finished with a chip time of 01:39:06, which was a 7:34 pace, and I was #90 of 1,077 finishers. After the race my friends and I did the tour at Thomas Jefferson’s home, Monticello, which was really cool.

And then the following Saturday, April 24, I raced the Riverwood Triathlon. My first triathlon of 2010.

I’m happy to report that I won first place in my age group at Riverwood. In a few other races I have finished in second place or third place AG, but this was the first time I have ever finished in first. You can see a few photos of me from this race here.

At the moment I am not signed up for any more races. I need to find one soon.

Any suggestions?
