I actually ran this race on Saturday. I ran it six hours after the Valen Times 10K. This is significant because I never, ever, ever run in the afternoon.

Splits:

  • 1 mi - 8:19 / 2 mi - 8:04 / 3 mi - 7:59 / 3.31mi - 8:12

Thoughts:

  • I dressed better for this race. Fewer layers kept me feeling light even though I was very frigid. The wind kicked up. I kept thinking that with each turn the wind would be at my back, but it never happened!

Thoughts:

  • Today the outside temperature had a windchill factor of 12°. I bundled up with many, many layers, buI remained  extremely cold throughout the race. Unfortunately, the layers made me feel weighted down. Each step was heavy and labored. I was just grateful to have finished the race.
