I had been watching the forecast all week. There was a chance that a cold front would move in and the low for Friday night would be 67. At 9 PM the temperature was 92 degrees. I was becoming very concerned. When I woke up this morning and headed out the door it actually felt cool, a refreshing 67.
My run went very well. The first two miles was a little tough, like usual. Mile four was super easy. There were sections that was uphill and yet I increased my pace and felt very strong while running.
My time was 1:03:24, better than I thought I would do. I haven't been able to get the stats of the run. I'll need to update later.
When we got to the car we noticed a flier for another 10K in October. As we started home I started thinking that maybe I'll run another 10K. To be honest it is a great confidence booster to place.
Results: As far as I could tell there were 78 runners, I was 43rd. There were six women in my age group. I didn't beat many, but I beat enough. :) My pace was 10:13/mile
