    Re: 50 and over, 5k and beyond - Race Reports

    Steve - Great race report & EXCELLENT TIME!! It is so good for you to have such a great racing experience.  Sounds like the weather was a little miserable, but I would rather have those conditions than hot and humid.  Wonderful to have such a support crew to help you out during and afterwards.  My family doesn't come out to an event too often for me.  I think that if I ever get more consistent and in control of my race pace, then using a pacer group will certainly help out.  Of course, they actually have to have one longer than 2:45 (LOL!) !!  I think that controlled pacing will very much be a question of proper training preparation.

     

    I am now into my multi-sport "race" season, and I do not have another long run-only race until the Women's Half Marathon in Nashville on 9/24.  I will probably start my build up for than at the beginning of August.  I have a duathlon this Saturday (2.5 mi Run/10 mi Bike/ 2.5 mi Run), and 3-4 triathlons before the HM.  I can only hope that I can establish a manageable training schedule with all of the heat and humidity of the summer.

    Hi everone,

     

    I've been posting over on the 1/2-marathoners' thread, but I guess I'm old enough now to post here!  I just wanted to share my race report for the Kitt Peak Ascent weekend before last:  http://community.active.com/blogs/RunningUp/2011/06/30/kitt-peak-ascent-61811

    Nan:  My wife is not part of Project Linus.  I confess that I am not familiar with it.

     

    The campground where my wife and I go does a 5K every 4th of July weekend, so today I made the mistake of doing it.  It was well over 80 degrees by the time we started at 9AM with very high humidity.  To avoid dehydration and other heat-related problems I ran at what is usually my half marathon pace.  I was the only entrant in the 60 and over age group because everyone else my age had the good sense to not run today.  At least the course is on a trail through the woods, so we weren't running on pavement.

    Re: 50 and over, 5k and beyond - Race Reports

    Spent the night in San Antonio with my daughter, Erica, so we wouldn't have to get up a hour earlier to make the drive into San Antonio to the race.  As we closed the door to leave Kerrville, Leta realized we didn't have keys and we had just locked ourselves out of the house.  What a great start we were having!  After arriving at Erica's I made her a batch of the No-Bake cookies before we headed for the couch (me) and the chair (Leta) for a short night. We got up about 6 AM and headed towards the race, which was held at The National Shooting Complex.  What a great facility they have there, and what a great local for a race, as the course was about 90% paved roads (inside the complex and with no traffic to contend with).

     

    Erica was flying to Detroit in the afternoon and I had to get to work in Fredericksburg by noon, so we were on a very tight schedule.  We planned on going to the race, staying for awards and door prizes, returning to Erica's apartment, taking quick showers, dropping Erica off and the airport and getting to Fredericksburg before noon.  In the confusion of planning what we needed to pack in the car, and when, I managed to leave the bibs behind in Erica's apartment.  I realized this about half way to race.  So we decided that since this probably wasn't the first time someone had forgotten their bibs after picking them up at early packet pickup, they probably had a solution for this eventuality, or if they didn't, we would "run for the fun of it"(??), that is, with out the official chip timing devices and just keep track of our own times via our watches.  Luckily, they were able to give us new bibs and it was not a problem at all!

     

    Leta found the volunteer coordinator and was put to work cutting up fruit, cookies, and helping with the 1,000 (!) hot dogs they were grilling!  She also helped the lady at registration packing up her boxes.  When she was done, she found a folding chair and the best spot in the pavilion, that is a spot out of the sun, and with a cool breeze blowing in!  Because she volunteered she should get a shirt (they had run out!) and she got us a free entry to a future race.

     

    The only suggestion I have to improve the race is more porta potties near the start, as I got in the line about 20 minutes prior to the start, and was still in the line as they fired the gun!   With so many people there (in excess of 750) and I being errrr "detained", Erica and I didn't find each and so we weren't able to run together.

     

    They course started off on a long downhill and meandered around alot of the 700 acre complex.  Past MANY trap and skeet ranges.  There were water and gatorade stations at miles 1, 2, and, 3; along with Porta potties on the course.  Water was also placed  in coolers between the mile marker stations at various skeet/trap ranges.

     

    Prior to the race, we were instructed not to leave the roadways, do to the danger of rattlesnakes!  I took a picture along the course warning of rattlesnakes in the area, and decided that, yes it did make me run faster!  If I would have seen a snake I really would have moved faster!

     

    The course was mostly downhill, for the first half, meaning that it was mostly uphill for the second half!  And the last hill was a killer!  It was hot, even at 7:30 AM and my strategy became one of walk the uphills and run, on the downhills/and when in shade (although when I saw Erica waiting for me near the finish line to encourage me, I decided I really had to run to the finish line) .

     

    When I finally crossed the finish line an icecold wash cloth was handed to me, and it was wonderful!  There was a lot of food, drinks waiting for us, and we cooled down and snacked.  Prior to the race I saw that beer and hot dogs were provided, and I thought who would want a hot dog at 8:30 AM?.  Well after the race and finding Leta in the best location in the building, I started feeling a bit err "faint" and knowing I was replacing fluids, I thought maybe my blood sugar might be low, and a hot dog with the bun and condiments, with the protein and salt from the hot dog, and the carbs from the bun and condiments might help.  After eating, I did feel much better!  Poor Erica was not only feeling faint but also had "the worst conjunctivitis of my life".

     

    We saw a runner, "the I Beat Cancer, Never Give Up" shirt guy, we both had noticed at races all over the state!  He took a picture of Erica and I after the race and it should be found on his web page, but I haven't been able to locate it yet.  BTW he is an inspiration, as I thought I would use him as my 'rabbit' during the Fredericksburg race, but even though, he is older, and stopped to take lots of pictures, he still beat me!

     

    Post race pictures were taken and then we raced (in the car!) back to Erica's, the airport and Fredericksburg, where I punched in at 12:15, one minute later than the company's 'grace period', but after talking to the managers, I don't think I'm in any trouble!

     

    My chip time was  48:12 (12:03/mile) and I was 23rd out of 28 in my age/gender group, 621st overall,  and a PR! (as it was my first 4 mile race).  ;-)

     

    Erica beat my time, as hers was 45:37(11:24/mile) 17th of 24 in her AG, 564 overall,  I also believe this was a PR for her.

     

    This was the 36th annual race was a good one and one we will definitely try to do again!

     

    PS:  Leta did use some of her secret talents and was able to "open" the locked door when she got home!  And Erica's eyes are doing much better today.

    Re: 50 and over, 5k and beyond - Race Reports

    Love this forum!

     

    I ran my first 5-mile race this past Saturday; it was the Dragin Tail 5-Miler at Lake Nebagamon Wisconsin.  And by 'ran' I mean jogged, walked, nearly crawled, but finished.  I am 59, and looking forward to turning 60 so I can enter a new age group!  Ha ha, never thought I would say that!

     

    Temperature was 85 at 9 a.m. and horrid humidity.  I seriously thought about scratching since have not trained in heat at all; we've had a cool summer so far until this sudden burst of heat in July.  I've been running for 2 summers now with winter off to lose condition and get fat.  Not a good plan.

     

    But I was encouraged to see that several young men were running the race with 14-foot canoes on their heads, while several of their friends were running with full Duluth Packs.  Why?  I do not know.

     

    Along the course there were 2 water stops, which were much appreciated - and also a private citizen spraying runners with a hose, which ditto.

     

    I had thought I'd possibly be able to run the whole thing (before realizing how hot it was going to be).  Was disappointed in my time (1:10, 14 m/m) but happy I did the race.  We jumped in the lake afterwards and it felt awesome.

     

    I'm following the Hal Higdon half-marathon training plan for the Rock-and-Roll half in St. Louis, MO October 23rd 2011. Anyone else running this race?  There will be a different rock band at every mile marker!  And beer along the way...  Race starts at 7 a.m. and my plan is to finish before sundown.

    Steve, thanks for the compliment.  I don’t do any other writing (other than technical papers for work), but I used to write a lot of fan fiction in my feckless youth.  Project Linus is an organization of volunteers who make quilts for children in “crisis” situations; my chapter donates theirs to a local hospital, and there was a drive earlier this year for the refugees in Japan.

     

    Thoroughbred21 – canoes on their heads, eh?  I have to admit that’s one thing I haven’t seen at a race!

    Re: 50 and over, 5k and beyond - Race Reports

    I started to think of running a half marathon about a month ago, when I realized that there was a local race, and that my weekly running schedule didn't look too different from what the various half marathon training schedules project for a couple of weeks before the race.

     

    As it happened, it was bright and sunny, maybe a little warmer than desirable (66 degrees forecast at 8 a.m., the starting time, and over 70 degrees by 9 a.m. -- I know that it was in the 80s the next time I looked at the temperature, after my run was done.) People who'd run the race in the past told me that the hills were bad, but I had driven the course the week before and didn't see anything that looked much different than my normal long runs. The worst part was the three bridges, with my acrophobia.

     

    My plan was just to run as though this was a normal long, easy pace Sunday training run, and for the most part it was pretty comfortable. The route was well marked, and there were people hold up cups of water at regular intervals, which was nice given the weather (I would take a few sips of water and then pour the rest over my head). Almost at the very end I had a stitch that I couldn't run through, so I stopped and walked for perhaps a couple of hundred feet, which allowed the cramp to ease enough to resume running and even put on a little speed at the finish line. Other than that I ran at a pretty steady pace, with my legs getting tired the last 2-3 miles, and no problems with breathing. They had an time display at the half-way mark so I know that my time then was just over 2:07. I finished with a time of 2:19:15. It was interesting to hear runners behind me huffing and puffing (I don't think any of them passed me.)

     

    There was no category for 60 years (my age) and over, which is pretty reasonable as 115 people total finished the race, and I was the only female in the 60 years and over, but I actually finished 2/9 for the female 50 years and older category.

     

    My legs were a little sore today but nothing bad or unexpected -- it made my five mile run this morning a slow "recovery run", but tomorrow and the rest of this week I need to be at work by 8 a.m., which makes it hard to get in a run in the morning. Tomorrow I will take a rest day, Wedneday maybe a little speedwork before breakfast, and Thursday (unless it rains), I'll get up at 4 a.m., eat breakfast, run, and then go to work.

    Robin:  Congratulations on finishing your first HM and thank you for a great report.  I'm glad you were able to conquer your fear of the bridges.  It is clear that you set an easy, steady pace for yourself to avoid burning out halfway through.  You don't say if the route was flat or hilly; I would be interested to know.  Are you planning another HM this year?

     

    You are another age-60 runner whose HM time is very close to my own.  As I've said before, I would love to run with runners on this forum who are my age and my pace, but we're so spread out all over the country that I don't see that happening.

    Re: 50 and over, 5k and beyond - Race Reports

    Jo Ann:  I'm sure lots of folks have been racing, but haven't done reports.  I haven't done anything since my back problems surfaced after my July 12th seven-miler.  I have nothing scheduled for the rest of the year.  The back is getting better with therapy and exercise, but it will be a longer recovery than I first expected.  I'm trying some short easy jogging interspersed with walking and that is going OK, but it will be some time before I can do sustained running.

    Yes, would love to read some race reports!

    JoAnn, I've missed you on the 50 & over thread! Steve, hope the doc give the ok to resume running.  Be sure to take it slowly when you get it.
