I finished as Top Runner Overall Female! This was also a PR for me! My pace per mile was 7:41.
This course is not a favorite for me. We run through Mill Race Park. The start of the race is highly congested. We zig and zag on the People's Trail. There is a lot of bumping and slow pacing for the first mile. My first mile was around 10:00. I knew that I was really going to have to kick my speed into high gear if I was going to have a decent finish time. I'm glad that I chose to run the 10K so I had time to make up the difference since both races started at the same time.
