Weather - Mostly overcast
In 2010, I ran my third Bolder Boulder and said I would never run it again. Too big, too much hassle, etc. Then I won an entry last year and had a fantastic time running it truly for fun. So this year, when Runners Roost opened up a "Rooster Wave," I immediately signed us up to run!
We left the house at 6:30 to arrive at the Boulder Runners Roost just before 7 am. We were given our special shirts (that we promptly altered) and had breakfast at the store.
|Rooster hats and feather boas? Yes, please.|

A half mile or so down the road at the "cartwheel" station was when I realized I didn't have my bib. I didn't want to go back for it, so off we went. It was pretty tough to even run when we wanted to because of the walkers and how crowded it was. It didn't help that we kept stopping to do things along the way.
Mile 1 - 19:53
Mile 2 - 25:34
Mile 3 - 11:35
Mile 4 - 20:48
Mile 5 - 11:28
Mile 6 - 11:53
Mile 6.6 - 12:54
Overall pace - 16:30 (lol)
Average "moving" pace - 11:58; overall time 1:19:06
A had an absolute BLAST running. Next year she wants to be in a qualifying wave and still do all the fun stuff. (We had told her that last year there were barely any lines).
We were able to watch the elite race, which I hadn't stuck around for in the past. Our friend (and local Hoka rep) was running and it was really cool to watch him finish!
