Skunk Cabbage Classic 10k

On Sunday, I ran the Skunk Cabbage Classic. It takes place on the hills of Ithaca, NY. There is a 1/2 marathon and a 10k. I orginally registered for the 1/2 marathon but since the hubby and my 3 monsters came to root on mommy I dropped down to the 10k! This ended up being a very good thing as I felt really crappy throughout the whole race!
The 10k started at 10am. I had pre-registered so we got there at 9:15. I got my number and headed to the bathroom....there was quite a line. I did a mile warm-up at 9:40. I missed the drills that I normally do before a race. I lined up, without headphones, as this race did not allow them. The gun went off and we took off.....

here is how it went......
Mile 1 7:23- I knew within the first quater of mile that it was going to be a tough run. My legs were so tight. Especially my quads!
Mile 2 7:48
Mile 3 8:06
Mile 4 8:16
Mile 5 8:17
Mile 6 7:55 .24 1:44 (7:24 pace)
Total 6.24 49:31 (7:59 pace)

This was my 4th time running this race 2001 (45:24), 2003 (51:44), 2009 (57:07). I was very disappointed in my time as my mommy pr is 45:20. But when I saw that it was the second fastest I have run this course and I actually beat a time from before having my 3 monsters I felt a little better about it.
94/409 total runners
22/245 women
3/40 age group
Prize for my age group..
