Another rainy day. Nice and cool though. Start of race was nice. Tried to find my pace however started a little fast (mile 1 was 8:30). Once again roads became hilly in the country. Tried to pace myself up and down the hills. Rainy weather sucked again. Ran into a problem with my shorts. Since I have lost some weight and my shorts were soaking wet with no drawstring they liked to fall down the whole time. Had to pull them up about every 20 steps. Once we turned onto the gravel I felt like my pace slowed somewhat due to the poor road conditions. Water was running across the road in a few places. Made the turn at real close to 28:00. Felt strong on the back half. Happy that I beat my last 10K by over 17 minutes.
What would you do differently?:

Better shorts with a drawstring. More training. More hills.

Warm down:

Finished and waited for Dave with Jeremy.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Hills, training and stupid shorts.

Event comments:

Wish we could have stayed on hard services instead of the gravel roads.
