it's been about 10 years since i last ran the minute man in westport. back then it was a 5 miler. then it became a 5k. a 10k - double loop of the 5k - was added. now the 10k course is a separate loop from the 5k. phew! regardless of the layout - i ran the 10k this morning - i love heading over to compo beach for road races.
my only time goal was a sub-50 minute finish, basically an easy tempo run. i also wanted to run sub-8 minute miles. despite a crowded - slow - first mile (8:16), the rest were all 7:50 or better. i finished with a 48:22, 7:47 pace - more than pleased with that result :D
this was my 4th 10k of the month, which kicked off with the scotland run in central park followed by a pair of trail races - the urban environmental challenge and the leatherman's loop.
here are the results for both the 5k & 10k races
here are the rest of my photos on facebook.
