OOPS! I did it again.

I PRed in the Colon Cancer 15k. I must say, I was very disappointed (as were many others) that NYRRs didn't have the giant colon you could walk through like they did last year. Apparently Central Park charged them too much to have it there because it was too big.
Really.
On to the race: I claimed I was going to run this with a number, not really race it. I warmed up 3 miles. Actually, I just ran to the start from home. And ya know, I don't feel like I raced it. No, I didn't hang back and just run it easy, but until the last maybe .1 of the race, I didn't run all out either.
Let me tell you, there was this guy, man, I really wanted to kick him in the pants. 4 times he stepped in front of me and slowed down. Once because I think he didn't want to be passed by a woman, the 2nd time at a water table, and the last 2, oh get this, WAS TO POSE FOR THE FRIGGIN PHOTOGRAPHERS. The 2nd time he did that I said dude, come on and I passed him. For good. Jack ass.
Anyway, I didn't even know what my PR was for the 15k until I got home and saw I PRed by 5 seconds.
The wrap up:
1:12:39
over all: 422/2407
AG 6/319 (what?!?!)
Women 71/1267

I'd have to cold-cock someone mugging for the cameras like that after getting in the way a bunch of times already. Nice work on the nonchalant PR-I would love to race this distance if anyone in CO ever ran a 15K.

Uhhhh what does "PR" mean? And are you actually serious about the giant colon thing?

Girl In Motion said...

Great job, Audra! Wish I could PR without trying. :-)

PR=personal record.
I am TOTALLY serious about the giant colon! You could walk through it, it was a huge hit last year!

@GIM-run a distance you haven't run before, instant PR.

Gah! That guy definitely deserves a kick in the pants. Congrats on the PR!!

jesslover said...

don't you know that the world will end if any man is ever slower than any woman?! You should be a little more sensitive and make sure to never be faster than a dude.

Seriously though, great job :)

Thank heavens that nasty colon wasn't there again. That thing was just wrong. Can I just say that I am totally jealous of your "PRing without trying bit." Wowzers! Plus, that guy should've known you look farrrrrr better than him, therefore deserved WAY more camera lens area. YOU ROCK!

The "unintended PR" is one of running's greatest treats. Great job, and looking forward to seeing you in a couple of weeks. -ESG/Ron

Right on, DP! You PRd because you were so relaxed about the whole thing. I think that's a good reminder for everyone: chill out and race better. Great job!
