I drove up to Reese, MI for this race. This is the first of a monthly series of races on the first Saturday of each month finishing in March. The course is a flat loop through part of the town run twice for the 10K. The temperature was in the mid-20s and sunny with a few clouds and a wind from the southwest during the race. There was overcast and snow flurries before and after the race. I was planning on running at 9:00/mile for the first half or so, but I quickly determined that this wasn't to be. I, then, hoped to stay under 1 hour, or at least to be under 10:00/mile. At least I made the last of those. I finished 89 of 90 running the 10K in 1:01:15.15 (9:51/mile).

This really shows me that I need to be consistent with my training. I will participate in as many of these races as I can. Repeating the same course will give me great feedback on this phase of my training.
