Comments:

I didn't put any pressure on this race. I decided to treat this as a regular training run. Weather was cold at the start, but I was over dressed. Ended up taking off hat and gloves 2 miles into race. Dropped off winter accessories and 1 layered shirt at lap 1. Took a gel at mile 7 - really helped.

My pace was pretty consistent and I did most of the passing along the last loop. Overall, pretty good effort and I liked running without any time pressure.

Warm down:

Walked around and got a cup of coffee.

Event comments:

Fun race - I will run the 30k of this series if I am in town.

Tony, Nice job on the race. Don't you just hate that hill? I be back for the final race of the series, but only for the 10K since it will be a recovery week for me. Sue
