I love the Waveney XC Series - but getting there after work can be chore. The drive to New Cannan normally takes me less than 30 minutes - but on a Tuesday night (like tonight), it's more like 40/40+ minutes in rush hour traffic. But then, on the way home, usually no traffic (again, like tonight) and I make it back in the door in less than 30 minutes. Okay, my traffic rant is over :O
As for the relay (one of my all-time favorite events), Rob and I teamed up to run the 3x 1 Mile repeats. I got to be the anchor (which gave Rob great opportunity to have beer waiting at the finish line!) leg of our team. We finished the 6 miles in 43:53, for a combined 7:19 pace. I didn't wear a watch/carry my phone, so didn't have my splits. Luckily, Rob was able to breakout out times from his GPS - 22:08/21:45. But, interestingly, his GPS measured the course at 1.04 miles (a bit long)!
That was a reversal from the short (very) 5K at Westport on Saturday. Still, a 21:45 worked out to a 7:15 pace, slightly slower than my 5K pace Saturday - but right in line w/the cross country terrain.
Only a couple of pictures this time around - some of which I "borrowed" (such as Francoise modeling this Summer's hot pink tee shirt for AG winners!)
Next up - the Taconic Beer Mile tomorrow night!
Here are the official results from ClubCt.
