it was very humid this morning for the norwalk summer series 5 miler. i had hoped to run a 7:15 pace for the race, but the weather made me reset that target to 7:20. still, even that more relaxed objective proved out of reach.
i ran an easy warm-up mile with roy before we lined up for the start. but with a 7:20 first mile, i knew it would be tough to keep that pace for the next 4 miles. as it turned out, my 36:59 finish (rounded up to 37:00 in the results) worked out to a 7:24 overall pace. it was a somewhat disappointing finish. but given the humid conditions, i'll take it.
here are the race results from hi-tek racing.
