Performance: Good
The first 10K in approximately 46. The last 4 miles were a bit of a stretch on a conditioning basis, with the pace drifting higher and the 11th mile being the slowest.
Course: The first 5 miles is a series of rolling hills and one long incline. The next 4 to 5 miles is down hill, and the last 3 to 4 miles are flat.
Keeping cool Good Drinking Just right
