2014-09-20 - MCRRC Lake Needwood 10k XC Race

~6.2 miles @ ~9 min/mi

http://zhurnaly.com/images/running/Needwood_XC_2014_diFonzo_z2.jpgGPS error on this hilly cross-country race shows a miraculous short-cut across the water during the final return loop — hmmmmm! It's a blitz along construction project routes, including wooden bridges with scary-wide spaces between the slats.

Official results put total time at 55:12, placing 45th of 120 runners, 37th of 80 males, 3rd of 7 in the 60-64 male age group. I lose to arch-nemesis-rival 8 year old Jason Parks by about 90 seconds.

Runkeeper tallies the pace, and route (more or less). Photo by Dan DiFonzo. | http://zhurnaly.com/images/running/Needwood_XC_2014_GPS_error.jpg |
