So Much for Pacing

A good day for a race (37F to 48F degrees). . A bit chilly at the start but warmed up pretty quickly during the run. I wore a bright orange toboggan. I started out trying to establish a good pace. Just before the race I had established a goal of 70 minutes. Goals are important, but I had not given it much thought.

So much for pacing: 6:27, 6:42, 6:41, 6:41, 5:51, 6:57, 7:10, 7:12, 7:22, 7:18, total 69:26.

Overall the Rocket City 10 Miler was a good race for me.
(69:26) Finished 23rd overall and 3 out of 14 in my age group.

Saturday the 28th will be the McKay Hollow Half Marathon. Forecast 57F degrees, rain and storms for race time.
Unless something happens I am a go for the McKay.
