It was a crisp, clear, beautiful morning for my first 10K run. I caught up with a bunch of runner friends pre-race and started out with Jeff, Kasha, Bill, and Amy. My 1 mile time was 10'07" and I was pleased with that pace. There wasn't a split at the two mile mark and I sprinted through the 3 mile gate to get in right at 30'00". Right after the 3 mile split there is a massive hill. Most people around me walked. I lost sight of Bill on this hill (Bill is usually just slightly ahead of me). When we run on Saturdays my goal is just behind him which keeps me a bit ahead of a 10 minute mile.
