the 2010 westport summer series kicked off this morning with the 2.2 miler at staples high school. this was my first time running this particular course - way shorter than the 10 mile course at staples (which closes out the summer series on labor day weekend). there were a lot of familiar faces there: emmy, rob, roy, ronnie, karen, jim, dawn, liz, and anatolie, just to mention a few.
i ran a 14:48, 6:45 pace, which came in just under my 15 minute target. emmy, then rob, caught and passed me in the last half mile. emmy was second woman overall, just behind liz!
this will be a busy weekend, with emmy's putnam county classic tomorrow and jim's four on the fifth on monday. on a down note, my car died on the way home - and i'm waiting to hear back from the mechanic what the problem is (and how much it will cost to fix) - argh :(
here are the race results.
