I focused on not starting out to fast and for the most part felt pretty good. My legs were tired because they were not used to going at faster pace.
Mile 1 7:27
Mile 2 7:34
Mile 3 8:15
Mile 4 7:43
My watch was a little off at the end but my finishing time was 31:35 (7:54 pace) so I was under my goal. Can you tell which was the hilliest mile :) ? I ended up 64 out of 361 and was 3rd in my age group out of 26. For females I was 21 out of 211. Anytime that I run better than what I thought I could I consider it a good race. This race did motivate me to get back into more consistent training. I would say the bug has bit me again :)
