- Drink water!!! I had a Pete's coffee and forgot water completely - after mile one I was dying
- Wear trail shoes on trails - my old road shoes just didn't cut it
- Have fun - OK, I had fun. But the whole water thing threw me off.
Last weekend I ran Seattle's Best 15k - the inaugural race. I came in 3rd female out of 253 (but they gave me an award for 2nd because the first two tied - free clothes!) and 20th overall out 417 of with a time of 1:05:25 (7:01 mile pace). This was a fun one as I started the race with the Greenlake run club guys.
