By the time the Elites started to run, we had moved inside to grab something to eat. I took this shot of Christin Wurth somewhere after the half-way point.
She had a pretty decent lead on the rest of the pack so I'd assumed she'd won. Wrong-o. Here's the video of the race if you're a total running nerd like me, but what essentially happened was Christin didn't run a tangent on the one and only curve near the finish and her competitor's caught up. She ended up placing third.
The weather warmed up considerably on Friday- one of the first nice days in almost 3 weeks- and I went for a run with my brother around Lake of the Isles. I hadn't run since my amazing but painful 1/2 almost a week before. My hip/butt started to hurt almost immediately but I finished the loop. I have again relegated myself to biking, stretching and icing. Ugh.
We didn't push the pace at all and took some time to snap a couple shots.

Off to the gym... Happy running!
