This is my first event actually jogging. My goal was 45 minutes and change which would be about a 13 minute pace. I started off faster than usual as I suspected that I would do because of the crowd of people starting off quickly. By the first 1/2 mile I knew I was going too fast to sustain the pace, so I deliberately backed off. My first 1/2 mile took 5' 45" ... way faster than ever before.

The course is marked every 1/2 mile so I could check my pace. I was able to maintain pretty well.
What would you do differently?:

Start learning to jog before age 50.

However since I completely beat my time goal, I am VERY HAPPY.

Event comments:

This is a fund raiser for the Parks & Rec Activities for the Developmentally Disabled. They had about 345 participants on a rainy Thanksgiving morning. The winners (male/female/adult/teen/youth) received turkeys. Then they raffled off pies, game hens, sparkling cider, and a few more turkeys. Enough so that if you stuck around long enough, everyone would win something.

I won a pecan pie. YUMMM
