So I did the Sea Isle 10 miler this past weekend. I didn’t drink much on Friday which is 1 of 3 days of the year I won’t get obliterated on the weekend. I drove left at 8:45am. Got to the Borgata at 10. Played poker for 3 hours and won 50 bucks. I had some time to kill so I played Pai Gow and lost 110. So I ended up down 60 after leaving the casino. Then I went to Sea Isle for the run. I start in this huge cluster fuck of people probably half way back out of 1400 people. So I get off at this slow ass pace where I ran the first mile at 7 minutes, but in reality it was probably sub 6 because of how slow I had to start. Anyhow, you run for a half mile or so and then the sand starts. Running on the sand isn’t awful but it’s much tougher than black top. I split 3 miles at 18:00 which shows how fast I was trying to make up the lost time from the beginning. I felt fine through 5 where I was a tad over 30 minutes. Then I ran 2 more fine miles at around 6 something pace. Then there was 3 straight miles of sand running where I was just gassed. No one was passing me until about a half mile left in the race so my pace wasn’t too slow but I just didn’t have the finish I was hoping for. Some broad passed me with a half mile left and that was obviously demoralizing that I couldn’t beat her. I finished in 65th with a time of 62:25. The competition was pretty good this year. Last race of the year will be the Philadelphia half marathon.
