Today was the Steamboat Classic in Peoria, IL. This race offers a world record class 4 Mile and the toughest 15K in the mid-west. We took the longer and more painful option. There are not a ton of 15Ks in this area, so it’s a chance to run the longer distance and get in a great hill workout!
We were off and all felt well, even up and around the steep hills, the first time around. Second lap around the steep hills into the park and my legs were toasted. I definitely need more strength and hill workouts. Still it was a great time to get out and race!

I finished in 1:10:21, not a PR, but 18th place female overall. The top 25 men and women for each race are recognized with an award.
Everyone did great! Rob finished in 1:05:25! This was Drew’s first time doing the 15K with a 1:24:00!
