Running hero: Pre, Deena Kastor Most influential person/people: Joe Shay
Overall feelings about the race: I thought it was pretty difficult. We went out sorta slow so i took the lead until the hill then tried to keep the same pace going up the hill and that didnt really work out for me...i got kinda tired and then just lost places after that and cramped up.
Best part of the race:
The start of the race until the bottom of the hill. I was in the lead and felt in control and strong. Then the end was really good because i had a good kick and passed a couple girls at the end
That is love them and their support!
