I got super dizzy when I went to do the back kick and felt a bit ill for the remainder of the set.

Marty switched cars and the core gear didn't get moved so no pre-swim core workout today.

5am: So demanding.  Not only do I want them to post a time.  I want them to post my correct time. Precision Racing indeed...

9:30am: Precision Racing acknowledged the problem and provided times (chip and gun) that make sense with my photos and my Garmin.  I am a happy camper now!

Race report posted.

Precision Race, the timing company, finally responded to me via Facebook (ignored my email which is interesting) overnight.  They said "your results will be in there in the morning."

Still no results as of 2pm.


7pm: Heard back from the timing company via email and they said that my results will be posted tonight.  Hopeful!

Awaiting timing data. Garmin got me at 3:59. Gun time may not be under 4. It'll be close.

Good event. Nice expo, great swag, well organized start and finish, and nice course. Bad timing company. Race report to follow Sunday or Monday.

Marathon start photo (marathon on the left, half marathon on the right, Bubbles in the middle).

Post race eats!

Travel to Myrtle Beach for packet pickup.


Oops!  A pair of Brooks Ghost 5s fell into my basket!  How did that happen?  (they were discounted and I want to give them a try again)


All checked in and ready to go!

Race swag: Tech tee, green bag and fuzzy blanket.

Thursday - February 14

Run
  • 20m 31s

  • 08m 50s /Mi

Short run with strides. Just keeping things moving.

Chocolates for my honey!


Emma will not be denied!  Heart shaped goodies from Woof Gang:


Sporting my holiday socks today!


The updated forecast for Myrtle Beach this weekend is for a the temperature to be about 40 at the start and 50 at the finish.  Mostly sunny but pretty windy (10-15 mph) from the NNW.   The course is more east-west than north south so I think that it will be OK in terms of headwind.  I guess that I will run in capris and a LS T.  Unsure if I will wear a vest or not.  A "real feel" of 46...  Waivering.
