2016 RACING BLOG CONTINUED -PART 3 - Starting with Briargate Turkey Trot 5k- 11/24/16.


62.  The YMCA Briargate Turkey Trot 5k--  Off of Briargate Parkway North Colorado Springs--

* I was 19th overall out of 3,300-- 18th male overall-- and a huge age division win in the 45-49-- got a pint glass race logo mug and a $50 gift card to cryotherpay. 

* The sun was out but It was a cold, cool, and very windy morning -race conditions were very slow - the course is all around 7000 feet- with a gradual uphill road climb to about 1.75 miles and then a gradual decline back to the finish on Briargate Parkway-same course as last year.  



63.  11/3/16--  Rock Canyon Half Marathon- Pueblo, CO City Park--

* 11th overall-- 1st Place Master champion !!  -- 1:23:35.

* Cold sunny start-- 2 loops around the city park Pueblo Zoo-- and then dropped down to the paved river path and head out West toward the Rock Canyon Dam--  the middle section was a dirt path which was smooth and also crude and rocky in some sections-- then back the same way along the river path and up one steep hill back up to the finish at the City Park where we started.   I felt good and strong in the entire race and I picked off one last opponent on the hill going into the finish to take 11th overall-- I also got several of the Air Force Academy racing team members. 




12/10/16-- BRAZOS BEND HALF MARATHON-- (*the race was actually 14 miles)  -- Sugarland, Texas at Brazos Bend State Park--

*1:26:45 for almost a 14 mile-- 87.47% Ranking on Ultra sign-up-- 2nd male overall award !!!

* Course-- mostly a flat loop trail run within the Brazo State Park-- mostly flat but still a lot of out and backs in the loop on a trail. 


that's a wrap for 2017 Racing and Competition !!!

64 Races + several Brewer's Cup races scattered throughout the year as I could squeeze in.    I am kicking off the 2017 year with our local new years day favorite race-- The Rescue Run 10k at Palmer Park.
