the norwalk summer series 11 miler was tough going this morning. the silvermine course is a tough, double loop, without having to factor in the weather. this time around we had incredibly soggy and humid conditions. i hadn't planned to run it - but tomrrow's bronx half marathon was cancelled in view the anticipated arrival of hurricane irene!
i didn't have any particular time goal in mind - i just wanted to survive both loops! i thought an 8:30 pace would do it - but after a pair of 8:45 miles during the first loop (and walking a couple of hills), that seemed to be a stretch. still, my 1:33:50 (practically 10 minutes slower than 2010's 1:24) worked out to just over an 8:30 pace (8:32) - so i'll take it :D
here are the race results.
