VXX Report

On Saturday I ran the 43rd annual Vestal XX (20k) road race. My time was 1:35:44, which is better than my rookie result from 2011 (1:36:17), but not as good as last year’s time (1:33:19). I am pleased that I ran consistent splits of 7:45/mile or just under. However, I had hoped to accelerate to a more aggressive pace as the race progressed, similar to my Bridge Run performance. I couldn’t muster the guts. There’s always next year, though, and the year after that, and the year after that… and if you manage to run the Vestal XX twenty times without croaking, you get a special award! A mug.
