Crazy 8s 8k race report

This is going to be short and sweet. I ran this race  wks ago and just never got around to a recap, oops!

What: Crazy 8's 8k
Where: Kingsport, TN
When: July 13, 9:58 p.m.

We took a road trip w/some of our fabulous running friends to run this awesomely CrAzY race! It was a total blast. I had not ran it before so it was a PR race for me. I was looking to do better than I actually did but given the time of day (and what now seems to be a recurring race day GI issue) I was happy with my finish.

I executed my race plan as best I could but between the extremely crowded race, time of day and my GI issues I gave what I had for the race/day.

Finish time: 44:51
Current 8k PR:  43:49 (from the fall)

In the end I KNEW I could have given more. I think I will always think that even on my best race/day. I think that's just the competitive runner in me. We had a great weekend away with friends. And this is definitely a race I will consider running again. Lots of support and very well organized.
