It was a harder course than I thought and I'm ashamed to say it: I walked. For about 20 seconds (I had to readjust my stupid jacket that was tied around my waist - it had my cell phone in it and was bouncing all over the place - I solved that problem by shoving it down my shorts).
This course had a LOT of elevation change and Mile 4 had 2 freaking steep hills in a row. BUT! I plowed up and didn't walk.
Automatic PR of 59:58. And I was pumped that I made it under an hour with those stupid hills. Go me! I even came in 6th in my age group and only 22nd overall. I love small races!
I like that I look like I'm dying.
