So, the results were officially posted yesterday afternoon for A1A, and my chip time was 2:09:41, so the Garmin was just 4 seconds slower than my chip time. Coolio.
I also scanned the results and found I placed 69th in my age group, yeah, "69" baby! Sorry, that's my inner teenager emerging :)
Today, I'm experiencing the usual aches and pains of post-race soreness, but nothing unusual -- mostly that means that going down stairs sucks -- and I'm sure I'll be right as rain tomorrow. Can't decide if I should do a recovery run today or not though. Usually, I rest the day after a long race, but tomorrow I don't really have time to run, and that means I won't get a run in until Wednesday if I don't do it this evening. What say you folks? Recovery run tonight? Or save it until Wednesday?
After the race yesterday, I did spend several hours grading papers, but I also made sure I got the appropriate afternoon nap in, and in the evening, Jerry and I watch the movie "Stardust": And I have to say, I highly recommend this flick! For those of you who loved "The Princess Bride" growing up, I guarantee you'll like this, and even if you don't like "The Princess Bride" (which is just silly), I think this film is perfect for all audiences: it's got action/adventure, pirates, fencing, love, magic, murderous princes, and humor. Both Jerry and I gave it two thumbs up! And now we both want to read the novel, by Neil Gaiman, that the movie is based on.
I guess that's it for now, my dear bleaders (that's "blog" + "readers"). For those of you who have today, President's Day, off, I hate you -- but, I hope you enjoy the sales; for those who are stuck at work like me, let's petition for this to be a future day off! Why? Because 3 day weekends need to occur on a monthly basis; there needs to be a law. That's my opinion.
