It was a great day for a race yesterday. However, I must confess that I almost did not make it to the race because I was just so tired. I like going to races in which I can take the train versus driving and paying a hefty parking fee. The 10K portion of the race was at 9:15 so I got to the park around 8:50. I found the Fleet Feet tent, dropped off my bag and made my way to the bathroom. Luckily there wasn’t a long line since walkers and runners were already lining up to for the race. The first portion of the race was for the walkers followed by the 5K runners.
There weren’t a lot of 10K runners which was kind of nice because the start line was not crowded. I got off to a good start and my splits for the first 3 miles are: 1-10:27; 2-10:39; 3-10:32. I don’t know what my times were for the next 3 miles because somehow my Garmin got screwed up. I can tell you that my finish time was 1:06. The finish time for my last 10K in September was 1:04. Ugh!!! Definitely NOT happy about that. What is wrong with me?!?!?!? I am frustrated and cannot figure it out. I am worried because I have a race on Saturday (5K) and Sunday (Half Marathon) and let me tell you that I did real good last year.
I am glad I made it to the race yesterday. It was a beautiful day to be downtown and as always it felt good to run. 🙂
Marathon training is right around the corner. Yikes! Looking forward to it but nervous about it too.
