The race was bitter cold. It was posted at about 14 degrees. I received a new Pearle Izumi top for Christmas from my parents. It kept me warm. I ran 2 miles before the race and 1.5 miles after the race. I ran a total of 6.79 miles.
My overall time was 19:08. That is a 6:09/mile pace. My first mile was the fastest at 5:41. I slowed the pace down because this was not a goal for me to PR. I was in 2nd place by a good distance so I knew I wasn't going to kill myself to the finish.
10.25 miles left to run for the year. There are only 4 days left and I know I will do it!!!
