RC Cola and Moon Pie 10-Miler

This is the first time I've done a 10-mile race, and I decided to treat it like somewhere in between a half-marathon and a 10K. I didn't train specifically for it, and it was super hilly! But I ended up doing just about what I'd expected—1:26:33. I had wanted to be closer to 80 minutes, or closer to 70 minutes would have been even better. But I'm not too disappointed, especially since my legs felt dead already at mile 1. I hit a little wall around mile 7 or 8, but I got over it and finished the last 2+ miles OK-strong.

Here are my results:
  • 1:26:33 total, 8:40 pace
  • 9 of 70 in age
  • 46 of 348 females
  • 202 of 786 overall
Later (after a nap and church) it was off to to the Y for weights.
