So this was the final leg of the Louisville Triple Crown of Running. This time, Lipstick Runner and I decided to do this race in time to get the regular entry fee. I actually left work Friday, and almost forgot about having to get the our registration packets. I walked to Slugger Stadium, and realized that for the 10 Miler, they make you go to Cardinal Stadium to get the packets (what a pain…).
Lipstick Runner had a goal for the race around 1:27ish, and I wanted her goal to be 1:25, so obviously, we were shooting for my goal for her 🙂 We hit the first 2 mile markers under goal, but then the hills of park came. We fell behind each mile, running between 8:40 and 8:50 pace on average. That right there ruined our 1:25. Once we got out of the park, it was smooth sailing (until the bridge). I lost Lipstick Runner at about mile 9, but she wasn’t too far behind.
All in all, it was a nice run. A lot of friends out there running, and it seemed there were a lot of great times. Dale was there, and taking pictures for the Training Studio. He got a couple of nice ones of myself and LR (hehe). Here they are:
