Family P.B’s!!!

Just finished a local, small race, “The Canadian” and the boys and I nailed our races:

Luke 3k, 14:57, 4:59 pace, 12th place overall and 3rd in his age group…his first ever lanyard!

Evan 3k, 13:58, 4:40 pace (clearly way too fast to run with me anymore!) 5th overall and 1st in his age group!

Me, hmmmm not sure how to record this one since the 8k course was measured incorrectly and was actually 8.6 km! My rant about that will come in the next post.  Based on my average pace of 5:10 I must have hit 8k around 41.20.  My goal was to get a time that started with 43, so I’m thrilled with the time. Of course that time is unofficial due to the extra 600 metres tacked on. Not so thrilled with the incorrect distance.

Full race report to come.

      Thanks Rod! We are very proud of the boys. The grin on Luke’s face was priceless when he realized he was in third place for the 13 and under group.
      As for me, I just wish they had measured the course properly! It would have been nice to see that 8k time in my stats.

        I’d be furious! We train hard and race honestly. We expect honest measurements in terms of vitals such as timing and distance in return. Have the race organizers said something about the mistake?

          I let them know during the awards ceremony and others did too. Everyone ended up with 8.6 km on their watches. Sportstats has changed our paces (they originally had my pace as 5:33, now they have 5:12) but it is still listed as an 8k race. I’m hoping that will change too.
          The problem was it was a double out and back, so a small error of where the turn around was placed was multiplied four times.
