We lined up at 8:30AM and soon we were beginning our adventure. I had my Timex Run Trainer 2.0 rigged up and used a few more features on it during the race. I used the interval timer to beep and vibrate at every mile and use the drink reminder. It worked great! After the first 2 miles I saw my pace at 6:09’s and felt really good. Miles 3-9 were all off road and even had about 6 river crossings. I was well up to my waist in ice cold water during a lot of the race which made it really fun. I quickly had a lead and never looked back. Luckily I was wearing my SmartWool Ultra Light Micro socks made my feet very happy and blister free even in the harsh conditions. I finished with a lead of 6 minutes over 6th place and got the overall win! The highlight was seeing Nikki and our kids on their scooters on the running path at mile 10 and they event scootered with me for a bit as I ran.
Thanks Timex for another great race! Looking forward to putting my new QR CD0.1 and the rest of my Timex gear to the test on May 19th!
