College football playoff 5k. The winner got two tickets to the national championship game, essentially a $3000 prize for first place (men +women). So even though it was cold (about 25F) at the start, there was plenty of competition.

I got out really slowly and was in about 50th place at the first turn. Moved up to catch a big pack of women at the mile (5:20), including 2:43 marathoner Lacey Krout. The men's leaders were looooong gone as 8 guys were through the mile in sub 5 and the leaders were probably sub 4:30. First mile was very downhill and thus really fast.

I caught Bridget Lyons (1:13/2:35 elite woman+UGA grad) just after the mile, but she was having none of that and surged. We stayed together for about half a mile until I took the lead going up a slight hill. The only person within striking distance was another woman wearing Clemson gear. I hit the second mile in 11:04, Bridget and I passed the Clemson woman. She was now in 1st place and I was still just some schmuck.

We saw Allie at about mile 2.2 and she cheered for Bridget, prompting her to surge ahead of me again. The last mile of this race manages to be all uphill so the time was slow. Bridget and I went back and forth a little bit before she put on the after burners in the last 400m. She ran 17:23, I'm not really sure what my time was yet, but I was only a couple of seconds behind.

Men's race was won by Rob Mullet (a 2016 olympian from the UK) in 14:40.

Rub Mullet?

Awesome race report. Sounds like Bridget is a tough cookie, surging to take you out of it mentally.

Nice Queen video awhile back, Breakthrough, thanks for putting that little gem in there.

I actually googled Rub Mullet and found some tasty sounding recipes.
