Today was a great day for running. It started to warm up pretty early and reached in the 70's. The Rocky Mountain Road Runners had another Trophy Series race today. It was the 9 mile race held at Westminster's Big Dry Creek Trail. I have been to this trail many times now with the club.
This Trophy Series race is important to me because I want to place well in the group. I want to be at least in the top 10 overall and top 5 for the male division. I am very close and I have the top 5 men spot. I just have to hang on.
I did well overall. My predicted time was 59:45. I missed it by 2 minutes. I was pretty happy that I did well. I started off way too fast!!! My first mile was 5:49. I think I had the best mile time! I really need to working on pacing. I slowed it down after the first mile. The last 3 miles were pretty tough for me. I had no gas left and I was really waiting for the end. The last couple of miles were at 7:30 min miles.
Distance: 9 miles
