Race Report: Riverton Country Mile 10K

In case you can't tell from the title of this post, I "raced" in a 10K on the 4th.  This was my third year running this course, and I'm happy to say that I ran my best time yet.  Not that it is anything special.  It was freaking hot.  Like everywhere else.  Because, you know, it's summer.

And like I've said many, many times before, I am horrible in the heat.  Now, if the temperature for this race would have been in the 40's, I would have rocked.  But since it was in the 80's, I did just fine.  For me.

I finished in 58:33, which means an average pace of 9:25 per mile.  And that's with walking through both water stops and getting slower and slower.  All that I wanted/expected out of this race was to get under an hour.  And not puke.  It was pretty close at the finish line, but I accomplished both.

We spent the rest of the holiday at the pool and BBQ-ing with family.

Not puking is always a good race goal. I have a friend that pukes every race - at least once. i don't know how he does it. I would quit.

And everytime I read your blog (which I usually do on my phone during my train commute, where I can't easily comment) I can't get over how big your daughter is. Seems like 6 months ago I was reading about you running while pregnant.

Heat sucks for great race times. I melt in the heat so know exactly what you mean. Great job on the race though...a 10k in summer is never ever ever on my to-do list so kuddos to you for being brave. And running a great race! :)
