What: Parks 10K
Where: Washington, DC (West Potomac Park/Hains Point)
Previous PR: 43:05
To say I’m happy with a new 10K PR is an understatement. It was totally unexpected. I am nowhere near 100% in terms of training. I ran this race completely by feel, and, except for the last mile which is always a sufferfest anyway, very comfortably. I’m not saying I could have run it any faster. I certainly gave it 100%, but with more focused training I think I can cut off even more time.
Last time I ran a 10K at Hains Point was on a freezing, blustery day in January, and I think I ran 44:15. Conditions were much better yesterday, although it was still windy. Is it ever NOT windy at Hains Point?!!
Anyway, full race report forthcoming…
