I say disorganized because the RR website didn't even say the location of the run, or where the kit pick up would be! *I ended up calling the run director on the Friday and asking, and then he sent out a mass email.* Also that morning they were missing a box of mens M shirts.
So they started the kids 1k, and about 10 minutes later started the 10k, then moved into the 5k a few minutes after that. They had a weird system for timing, it beeped when you crossed the finish and a paddle to run over your chip. ? Everyone had to stay in order after crossing to get 'paddled' down.
aSo as the title says, I am still chasing the sub 25 minute 5km! ARGH. The hills, stopping to tie my shoe at km 3 (that was a new one, NEVER happened to me before!!) I still managed 2nd in my age group (20-39) . 24th overall.
|Bash got me as I crossed the finish.|
So I've heard for a few years about a ZOMBIES, RUN! coming out to itunes. I decided to go for the 8$ download.
Eh. Worth the hype, not in my opinion. BUT I was using it on my Ipod, I don't own a Iphone. So GPS wasn't an option. It mixes your music playlist in with the storyline. It gives you different times in your workout to speed up. I've tried it twice, and will give it another go in the cooler weather when I am enjoying my run instead of panting on the side of the road like a dog in heat. *wink*
