Comments:

This is a good, tough course. Some good hills on the bridge and in the neighborhoods. Very scenic. I started way too quick for me. Through the first 4 miles I was averaging 8:10 and then the hills hit. Slowed down a bunch but was able to maintain 8:41. The course is a bit longer than 10mies (10.12)
What would you do differently?:

Paced better in the beginning

Soon after I got married, I decided I needed to get motivated to work out and focus on getting back into shape. I could barely jog a quarter-mile without needing a walk break.

I think quite truly for the first time I 'get it'. It's not just about the fitness. It's not just about the great little endorphin rush as you hit 5, 10, 15 miles...its not just the medal at the end.

The word enthusiasm comes from Greek enthousiasmos or “inspiration by the presence of a god.” If you are enthusiastic about your sport, I encourage you to honor that inspiration by finding balance.
