Personal:

I live in Kauai, Hawaii with my wife and 3 kids.  I ran x-country and track in high school. I had too much fun in college and never tried out for the teams. I graduated from BYU Provo.

Today was the sugar mill 10 mile.  There are only 3 races on Kauai a year so I of course get excited for all of them and pick up the training for the races.  I wasn't able to train as much as I would have liked, but it was sufficient.

So my goal was sub 1 hour or 6 minute miles.  At mile 4 I was like 23:30 so on pace and way ahead of everyone.  There was supposed to be a race helper person at the turnaround point telling everyone to turn around.  Well, he wasn't there when I got to the turn around so I ran approx an extra 1.3 miles in around 8 minutes.  So my race was really 11.3 miles.  The road ended so I turned around and on the way back the race helper guy was there who I yelled at (I could have been a little nicer but that screwed up 1 of only 3 races on this island!).  It turns out I was the only one that ran the extra distance.  I got focused again and just started picking off people and found out with 2 miles to go there was only 2 people ahead.  I passed #2 and with about 250m to go was close to #1.  I tried to sprint but almost puked so I had to slow down a little.  The #1 guy slowed down too which made it even easier to sprint by him with 100m to go.

So I'm happy I still won and got a gift certificate for gas.  I'm dissapointed I don't know my actual time but oh well.  11.3 miles in 1:09 would probably mean I would have been under my 1 hour goal.
