By Rae Ann Darling Reed

Knowing your limitations and being a smart runner are meant to be compliments but can be difficult to hear when you just dropped out of your first 50K and feel like a failure.

I ran conservatively behind the lead female for two of the four 7.75 mile loops then took the lead about a third of the way through the third loop and felt great. I was just running the pace that felt right, comfortable for me. I really tried to ignore what the other runners were doing, other than on those first two laps when I held back to stay behind the leader.

On that third lap, I hit approximately the 22 mile mark and started feeling dizzy and chilled so I decided to walk the last 1.5 miles back to the start/finish pavilion that we passed on each loop.

VIRGINIA BEACH, VA – Hosted by the Shamrock Marathon’s Towne Bank 8K, the race went off at 7:45 AM on St. Patrick’s Day. Sunny skies and freezing temperatures, but little wind, greeted the USATF Masters 8K Championship competitors, fine conditions for fast running. Colorado’s Libby James, 81, a Hall of Famer, took full advantage. She shattereded the American 80-84 Record, lowering Anne Clarke’s 1991 mark of 52:00 to 42:34. James will add this to her collection which already includes the 5K and 15K. Her Boulder Road Runners club mate, Roger Sayre, 60, almost got it done as well, coming within 3 seconds of Norm Green’s 1993 Record of 28:07.

Age-Grade scoring is the best way to compare performance for age across all Masters competitors. James, not surprisingly, scored the top age grade of the morning with 99.04%.
