Fall Classic 2010 Round Up

Site Link

Very cold day down at UBC with a -2 on the trucks temp gauge.  As long as it wasn’t snowing I was ready to tackle this race and get my time down before February’s Rock and Roll marathon.  I was fully suited up with ski socks, long sleeve, sweater, gloves, and two gels.

I have always enjoyed this race, not a big fan loop route but how the event is ran is second to none.  I didn’t get a chance to pick up my package til race day and it was so easy and painless with time to spare.  They had an interesting timing system this year, with the timing chip placed on the back of the number bib.  I’m still confused  how my time ended up, I was crossing the finish line at about 1:27.00 but the final results say I whacked out a 1:25.55. (didn’t start a minute plus from gun time)I can’t really argue since I forgot my watch, so I will stick with their time..so goal achieved.

I was also playing around with this website the other day and seems to have a descent database of previous race times.  Type your name and find some of your results.  Athlinks.com Not a bad little site.
