it's been a while since i've been to burying hill beach - years, actually. the westort summer series 8.44 miler starts and finishes there, with a few decent climbs tossed in the mostly loop course. aside from some lingering humidity, we had some decent weather.
i didn't have a time goal in mind. instead i wanted to get in as many 7:30/7:35 miles as i could. that plan worked well for the first 5-6 miles, but i slowed down enough over the final 2.5 miles to bring my average up to 7:40 for the full distance. i finished with a 1:04:40 - which i'll take, under the circumstances :D
here are the race results.
