Shamrock 15K Recap

Overall I am satisfied with my results. I felt light and it felt easy for the first 4 miles. The Northampton hill was tough and I developed a wicked side stitch that I couldn't shake the rest of the way. My time was slower than I expected...so I give my performance a C+. I give my legs & lungs an A- as I never really got fatigued. I just kept slowing my pace to shake the stitch. Much better shape this year. I will run the Malachi 5 miler next week for a better apples to apples comparison of my fitness.

Great job out there Jim! I love this course. It beats me to all hell but I love it. My lungs get a C on the course and I'd give my legs a B+--the 50K training did wonders there.
