Still at it...
THANK YOU to all of you out there who are contacting me and are interested in learning about NATT, as well as, helping the organization with the purchase of a wristband. Keep those requests coming! As soon as you get in touch with me we can get the ball rolling and have the wristbands on their way!
THANK YOU a thousand times over!
This weekend I had the chance to race in a Trail 10K at High Banks Metro Park just north of Columbus on route 23. I love this place a great deal as it has a number of hiking trails that make for VERY CHALLENGING running trails that I enjoy a lot. Mrs. Clot Buster found this place about two years ago and we go there to train very often. So, racing on those same trials is a big trill because we get to push one more gear out there than we normally do. I raced pretty well, despite my lack of intense training. Once the season is over I pretty much cut back a lot of my swimming, biking, and running to a level in which I can keep a base but not much beyond that. So, racing a 10K can be a pretty good shock to the system.
On Saturday, I felt great and I was able to push a pretty fast pace according to the Clot Buster's standards. I was able to clock a 45:32 for a 10K distance that had some very steep hills to cotend with. But best of all I was able to finish THIRD OVERALL in the race!!! I could not believe it... I guess that all of the good runners skipped this race and let us slow guys have our moment of glory out there. Hey, I guess that I take it and enjoy it for what is worth!!!
So, off we go to start another week in paradise.
To all of you reading out there... HAVE A GREAT WEEK!
Thanks for reading,
The Clot Buster
