Just a quick post as I need to get involved in getting the house ready for Thanksgiving dinner.
Another glorious running weather day. I think the announcer said that over 4000 registered runners participated today. I lined up where I thought an 8:30 miler should be at. It turned out to be pretty accurate. I passed as many as those that passed me and by the 2nd mile, not many passed me or got passed by me.
Mile 1: 7:50
Mile 2: 7:53
Mile 3: 7:54
Mile 4: 8:50
Mile 5: 9:34
Shoes: Asics Gel Kayano XI (212.1 miles)
I thought I exerted the same effort for the whole race but my perception did not seem to jibe with my time. Consistent first 3 miles and slower last 2 miles. I've heard from Jon Walk that the course might have been slightly longer than 5. Perhaps 5.2. If it was indeed 5.2, my pace would have been 8:05/mile.
Met many folks today. But right now, I hear my wife calling me.
