AM- Well I haven't been on the blog for this whole week, so I am trying to catch up on everything today. The race today was down by the Armory Track on Washington Avenue. It was mildy windy, and it was pretty cloudy. There were rougly 5,500 runners in total, and the competition was very tough. If I were to get top 30-40, I would have needed to run in the high 15 minute range. First place ran a 14:50, who was pretty much in no mans land, and then there were just masses of runners about 30 seconds after him. I wasn't feeling very good this morning, so I just told myself that I would run whatever pace felt good for today. Ended up running a fair time, but not anywhere near race pace, and I was very comfortable during the entire run. My watch had the course at 3.18, and my splits were 6:14, 5:58, and 5:42 for the last one. Felt good to negative split, and overall it was a very good, organized race. Gonna try to run when I can this week, but I am on vacation so I am not too concerned about it.
