yesterday i ran my first litchfield hill road race. it was the second race of the day, on the heels of the bridgeport run the rock 5k, that morning. the course lived up to its billing - hills! the major one was called "gallows hill" to inspire! my only gripe, in an otherwise well-staged event was the lack of a baggage check. for an event that had just under 1,500 (1,483) finishers that was a major negative.
i managed a 52:53, 7:27 pace over the 7.1 mile course. emmy and andi took 2nd and 3rd, respectively, in their age group. in addition to emmy, kate and jeanette also ran the bridgeport 5k earlier in the day.
race report to follow. here are the race results, via coolrunning.
