it was one of those mornings, waking up to the sound of rain coming down outside, that the last thing i wanted to do was go outside and run. but somehow i got myself out the door and drove over to norwalk for the summer series 7 miler. despite the light drizzle, the conditions weren't that bad. the most trying thing was the humidity - which even the rain couldn't seem to break.
i knew things would be tough when my glasses fogged up by the end of the first mile! it seemed like i spent a lot of time wiping them over the next 6 miles. my goal was to run a sub 7:30 pace for the race - but i couldn't keep it together for last two miles and finished in just over 53 minutes, a 7:35 pace. it was a little disappointing, but given the humidity - i'll take it.
here are the race results from lightfoot runners.
