Placed 11/14 in my age group (18-34), which is a pretty rugged group if you ask me. Easily the most unfair grouping in all sport. Going on 31, I am a mere shell of an 18 year old. I can’t even urinate as fast as a teenager. It is probably the only classification in which the top and bottom ends of the age group are separated by nearly a factor of 2. 2! The competitors at the top of the group are literally twice as old as those in the bottom. Basically I am making excuses at this point.
Average time for all individual entrants was 1:32:54. I’m about 4 minutes off. That’s not that awful.
Average time for my age group was 1:25:53. That math I am not all that interested in. 🙂
