Event - Bridge of Flowers 10K
Location - Sherbourne Falls, MA
Goal Time - 46:30
Real Time - 47:47 (PR!!!)
I hadn't run a 10K since the 1986 Peachtree Road Race when I was 12 years old. The New England Championship seemed like a great one to try.
Such an idea turned out to be incorrect once I had actually started running. The first two miles were okay. It was the 3rd Mile that killed me. The third mile was straight uphill and into the foot hills of the Berkshires. In the end, I averaged about 7:40 a mile, however the third mile was 10:30. So maybe I could have finished much better without that dreadful mile.
But it still beat my 10K Personal Best!!
