Not a best time, but I finished feeling tired, but good. Didn't get sick, like last year...
Starting to like running again and get my mojo back! So a success in my mind!
On to the splits -
Mile 1 - 7:49 (all down hill)
Mile 2 - 8:02 (still down hill)
Mile 3 - 8:22 started the ups and downs
Mile 4 - 8:23
Mile 5 - 8:10
Mile 6 - 8:21
Mile 7 - 8:34
Mile 8 - 8:34
Mile 9 - 8:40 (up hill!)
Mile 10 - 9:01 - (hills - which did include some walking, legs were tired!)
According to my watch - the race was 10.15miles and I finished in 1:25.05 (10 miles would have been 1:24:00)
The race sent me this email a few hours after...
