    Great Behind the Games video….gets the adrenaline pumping again, just watching it, even though the Games are already over!!

    Quick question – meeting at the gym or at the course?

    • Aaron says:

      6 & 7am classes met at the course.

    • Tasha W says:

      Thanks, Aaron!! I’m still debating if it’s a good idea for me to attempt it in this afternoon’s heat (news said the index will be 105-110 this afternoon and I’m not sure if it’s smart for a pregger a week shy of 7mo to attempt in that kind of heat), but I may go and at least speed walk it for 30 minutes while everyone else is running since I’ve been hydrating since last night! Better than nothing, I guess… Just hard to tell myself “no!”

    One of my slowest 5k times in quite a while. lower legs still wrecked from the long hill run on Saturday.

  4. Garrett D says:

    32:51 or something slow like that. I feel for the afternoon classes.

  5. Aaron says:

    30 plus seconds slower than PR, but that’s ok. I’m planning on going at 75-85% this week since the Faction games are this weekend.

    Congrats to Ryan on setting a new PR. He finished 23:10, over 1 minute faster than his previous PR.

    20:41, nice course. I hung with Aaron until the hill on the way back and he just out ran me there and kept a comfortable lead from that point on. I know I can run faster, but a weekend of wakeboarding and tubing took it’s toll.

  7. Craig Herr says:

    2 1/2 min off pr – it was hot

  8. Justin says:

    2 minutes off PR. I am continually getting slower.

    About 2 minutes off of pr. Low back started cramping at about a mile. Not sure if it was poor hydration or what, but it sucked.

  11. joe c says:

    26:00 very very very very slow for me. Did not stretch long enough and pulled my hamstring.

    • Russell says:

      Joe I would actually suggest that your stretching could have caused you to pull your hamstring. Pre-workout stretching causes muscles to weaken for roughly 10-15 minutes and is a great way to get hurt. For next time, I’d suggest a more movement-based warmup with some dynamic stretching instead.

  12. klowe says:

    -1 min off of PR but 1.5min faster than 1 month ago
    ran at 12:30 – so friggin’ hot

  13. Kyle Mosier says:

    24:40 – at least a minute maybe more off my PR.

  14. Jake Naumcheff says:


    Nice and hot outside today

  15. Kerri says:

    35:38- about 3:20 off my PR for the CCC. My PR was in February….then, I had a running buddy that had a good pace (ahem, she’s now 7 months pregnant), and helped me set mine. =o) Way to get out there and give it your best today Tasha! That took some real uumph!

    Today I felt really good (although obviously I wasn’t fast),all the way down and then back to the hill…..then, it’s like I just fell apart.

    I’ve finally quit sweating about 45 minutes later. Good, hearty sweat today!

  16. Ron Wood says:

    29:52 PR since that was my first time to run our course. I skipped 5K WODs until today…

  17. Barry S says:

    26:30, & that included about 3 minutes of walking…most of the last mile was intervals (30s walk, 1 min run)…blaming the humidity!
