My goal for this race was to be faster than my last 10K. I wanted to beat the 1:18.40.... 12:40 pace....
Somerset is a bit hilly. 160 ft climb around mile 2, 90 ft climb at mile 3, and several other 50 ft climbs.
I was passed by quite a few people in the first few miles. I was last!!!! They also had a 10K walk, so I wasnt last last!! But I was at the end of the runners.
It was a bit chilly and sprinkly to start. Cloudy, 57 degrees, with 88% humidity. The humidity was downplayed by the cooler temperatures.
I power walked the hills, and was able to run the rest.
Time: 1:19.07 Pace 12:37.......... I missed my PR by 27 seconds, BUT, I had a better pace.... In other words, I didnt run the tangents at this race. I ran 6.27 miles instead of 6.2....... OH well!! Ill get it next time!!!
AND AMBER did the 5K walk. She didnt sign up for the run because she was afraid of being sore from the last half marathon... SHE FINISHED FIRST IN HER AGE GROUP!!!!!!! She got a medal... SO proud of her and her accomplishment!! Time 42:26 Thats a 13: 34 pace.
