18:15, beat #2 (a girl) by 4 seconds. only 36 runners in total. went out at
a smooth pace, led for a little bit then overtaken by a barefoot runner. I
overtook the barefoot runner at about half way, and told him "nice shoes!"
At about 2 miles, a girl caught up with me. This isn't happening, I thought.
I was running up a bridge with a head wind, and it was difficult. So I took
it easy for a few steps and tuck myself behind the girl. I knew I had a
better kick than her (male vs female really isn't fair), and I only need to
stay with her till the last quarter mile - which is what I did. I started
pulling away with about 0.3 mile to go. It was quite thrilling. Though I
didn't PR, I had no intervals in the last two months, and felt stronger
today than I expected. I paid $19 to register for the race, and won a $25
gift certificate and a beer glass, so it was a good deal.
