Coolest Race in Michigan

AKA The CRIM. For those that don't know, the race started out as a 10 mile run in downtown Flint but has grown over the years to also include a 5k, 8k, and 1 mile fun run. It's a very well attended charity race. Plenty of top notch runners come out to compete in the 10 mile run which I have heard described as hot and hilly. It will be fun to be out on the course with some speedy speedy runners. Hopefully I don't get my ass handed to me too badly.

With hardly any hill training under my belt this season it could get ugly.

Yeah but you have all that e-speed from great track workouts to bank on. Have a great race! We'll be cheering you on.

Somehow, I doubt you are going to get your ass handed to you. LOL.

Good luck at the race, I know you will do great, MRS. Speedy, I think you will be the one kicking some butt.

You'll most likely leave me in your dust. Just be gentle!

I'll be there around 7 or 7:15am, milling around downtown, near the big Citizens Bank building...

I'll be the one in the sexy Brooks Burn fiery red/fuschia shoes.

You will do great. Just ease into the early miles (its so crowded the first mile or two anyway), through the hills, and then you go through a rolling area, very nice subdivision, out to mile 8 and then hit it hard. You can see the finish line almost a mile out, on red cobblestone, but you should be able to pick it up before that. Don't forget the beer at pre mile 4 and follow the blue line. Wish I was going!

the hills are in the second half, so make sure you save some energy if you want to negative split!

when I looked at the results from last year (the 1st girl in my AG would have ran a 5:39 pace or something ridiculous, but she was an elite so didn't count) I was like "holy sh**!"

I'm planning on getting there probably right around 6:30-6:45 to get my number and stuff. I have to do at least 2 pre-race, so yes warming up together would be great!

Good luck this weekend.

I agree with Wes, you'll be handing people their ass - as weird as that sounds. Have a great race.

GOOD LUCK! You're going to do great! Tell the Kenyans "Brent said 'HI'" as you pass them!

Jodi said...

Can't wait for the Race Report! I'm sure that you will be the one doing the spanking :)

i doubt you ever get your ass handed to you, BUT if it were, i'm sure it'd be nicely garnished with the grass you kicked up while giving it your all.

i'm behind, so i'm going to close this and continue reading about e-speed.
