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?

    Congrats on winning your age group. Since you’re not signed up for any races in the near future, perhaps it’s time to brew another batch.
