it was back to compo beach for the westport summer series 6.85 miler. i ran the 4.1 mile race there just 3 weeks ago. it was another record turnout for a summer series race!
i had no real time goal in mind. i ran the norwalk summer series 7 miler at a 7:35 pace last month - which was well off my target of a 7:30 pace. i figured, given the better weather conditions for this race, i'd want to run a sub-7:30 pace - but push to finish in sub-50. even walking up the hill just before mile 4 (my slowest mile in 7:50), i managed to squeeze in 50 minutes! last year i ran this course in 53+ minutes - so my 49:48 finish was a pleasant surprise!
here are the race results from westport road runners.
here are the rest of my photos posted on facebook.
