While it was a little cold to start the race (about 41 degrees) it was a beautiful fall day, great colors and a fun race. They even had hills.
I have been training with a group of runners coached by Heather Collins. Two of the women in that group also ran in this race, Heather Bublick (on the left) and Nikki Kopelson (center). I think they both ran personal bests.
I had hoped to run under 22 minutes, but my official goal was 22:30 and I ended up running 22:25, a 7:14 pace. My mile splits were 6:52, 7:06, 7:46 (but that last mile had all the hills.)
I finished first in my age group of 60 to Infinity (there weren’t too many in that cohort) and I finished 20th overall out of 150.
