Total Distance

Always a good time, this race is a good check against the excesses of the holiday season. I like to see where I'm at fitness wise and go from there in Jan/Feb/Mar for the all important April races. Although I'm a little flabby/heavy from my racing weight, it's good to see that I'm at exactly where I need to be this time of year.

First mile was uphill in into a strong headwind. Went with the pack in 5:19--that's half marathon pace. I think last year the first mile was 4:58 or something. Anyway I pickedit up and lead second mile, which was hilly of course and dropped a 4:56. Greg gunned it and took off then the other guys fell off of me and I ended upgoing 5:00 for the last downhill mile. Sadly the third mile was 5:15 (all splits based on my watch). It was WINDY and hilly but I'm pretty happy with this result in a low key race. I'm on the right track. Just a little heavy because of my diet and recent drinking habits.
