Woolaroc Race

For the 2nd year in a row Tony and I ran the Woolaroc 8k north of Tulsa in Bartlesville (where Tony grew up). We ran the race last year and really enjoyed it. It's a smaller, more local race. They do have chip timing, water stations, food, tshirts, and all that other important race stuff. The course is hilly though. One good long hill towards the beginning, some slow climbs in the middle, and a good long hill in the end. It's just around the entrance & exit road to the museum and all that. Last year it was really cold, low 40s even once we started. This year it was warmer, 50s, and sunny. It was still really comfortable even until the end of the race. We obviously didn't run together at all this time. Tony took off and I took the slow and steady approach. It was different to run a race and not feel like you're going all out, but that didn't make it any less enjoyable for me. I was really just happy to be able to be out there doing it.

Here are our results:
Tony: 33:09, about 6:34 per mile, 13th overall and 2nd in his age group. About a minute faster than last year.
Beth: 43:15, about 8:39 per mile, 22nd for women and 4th in my age group. This was about 7 min slower for me than last year.

Another kind of thing is that our race numbers were 317 & 318...3/18 is our due date! So we thought that was kind of cool.
