today emmy and i made the hour and a half drive up to norfolk for the norfolk pub 10 miler. on the drive up, via route 8, we were welcomed with a snow squall!
the race itself is in the shadow of haystack mountain - and it seemed like the course ran up and down a mountain!
the town billed itself as the "icebox of connecticut" - and it was almost cold enough (w/the wind chill) for that to be an understatement!
i finished in 1:20:02, an 8:01 pace. emmy finished in 1:22:42, an 8:17 pace - and was 3rd woman overall!
here is my race report.
here is link to the official results at greystone racing.
the post race awards were, where else, a pub!
heading over to the pub.
believe it our not, the runners took over the place! our bib tags were redeemed for draft beer!
emmy had an old specked hen ale.
i opted for the dogfish head 90 minute i.p.a.
