The Front Street Mile

Race #2: The Front Street Mile

We headed down to Front St around 2 pm to check things out and get ready for the one-miler. Front St. is right on the water and has a lot history, along with touristy type shops and restaurants.

Old Court House

We wandered around and checked things out before getting ready for the race. The kids races started at 3:00 with the littlest ones running first. There was more than one kid under the age of 7 laying down 7 minute miles. Fast little ones!

At 4:00 the grown people races started. It was pretty darn warm and humid so I was pretty happy it was only a mile! The masters went first, followed by Elite and Open Men 18-39 and last but not least the Elite Women and Open Women 18-39. This was an old school small road race with no chip times. Just a clock, a gun, a guy on a megaphone and a guy with a stop watch.

We got lined up and I somehow got stuck back a few rows. The road was narrow so I planned to do some major dodging and weaving when the gun went off

We ran down Front St for a half mile, hit a turn around and came back. After some weaving I caught a girl I was talking to at the start and paced with her. As soon as we hit the turn around and came back to the straight away I made my move to pass her and never looked back

Yes I realize my shorts are super out of control. In my defense it was freaking hot out. I have never run in just a sports bra and was pretty self conscious but once we got going I didn’t care anymore!

I crossed the finish line in 6:32. 2nd woman in the open age 18-39 (there were not that many women, but I’ll take it)! Pretty stoked on this time! 

Got my top 10 finishers medal and headed to dinner.

Overall my body feels good. I will be taking it nice and easy at the half tomorrow to give my achiles a break. 2 races down, 1 to go. Almost a MAUI WARRIOR!
