it was a fantastic day to run the last race in the norwalk summer series, the sam ephern half marathon! it was strange to see runners in long-sleeved tees (including me) in the chilly pre-start temperatures. but the chill didn't linger - not beyond the first mile. i had a 1:40 target in mind for the race - and missed it by 44 seconds (1:40:44).
in a surprise, i took 3rd place in my age group for the overall series. this was the first time in a few years that i hadn't registered for the entire series because i didn't think i'd be able to make the enough races (4) to score. as it turned out, i managed to run 5 of the 6 races.
here is my race report; and here are the race results.
