13.14 mi 01:28 06:43 pace
Day 2 of racing weekend for me. 1:28:20 (chip), 13th overall, 10th male, 1st AG.
Very "play it by ear" race plan - go out fast the first mile then stay under 6:52 for each mile to get sub-1:30 or better. First mile was 6:26, then it varied a bit (especially when going into the wind). Ryan was there again today, he passed me fairly early and I tried to keep him in my sights. He passed a few people, and eventually I passed one of the guys who had been in front of him at one point. After feeling like I was slowing around miles 5 and 6, I sped up the 7th mile. During the last mile I caught up to and passed a guy in an orange shirt was ahead of him to almost the end when he surged past me.
My legs were sore about halfway into the race, feeling yesterday's 5k I guess. Also there today was Matt who pulled away pretty early from me and ended up with a 1:26.
Splits: 6:26, 6:39, 6:50,6:50,6:39 (+30 seconds to sync up to mile 5 sign),6:47,6:37,6:39,6:48,6:55,6:51,6:43,6:40, 0.1@6:05
Cheered on Cynthia as she came in for a PR with Christina just ahead of her with a PR as well.
In some ways I don't think I went all out at this race, but because I wasn't sure where I was at fitness wise I set modest goals hopefully setting myself for a stronger effort next time.
