2014 norwalk summer series 7 miler: race photos & results

i had mixed feelings about running the Norwalk summer series 7 miler this morning because tomorrow is the escarpment trail run.  but since i'd probably run an easy 5-6 miles in any event, i decided to run the 7 miler and try to hold back a little for tomorrow.

i hadn't realized the last time i ran this one was back in 2010!  even so, i knew most of the course well - with the race starting at the same location as the boston build-up 10k.  the lower loop covers the same ground as the rowayton fathers' day fun runs.

my 54:46 was my slowest finish for this race - even slower than my 2010 finish in 53+ minutes.  but even had i gone all out, not sure i would have run a sub 50 minute race (like 2009 and the years preceding!).  still, i was more than glad to have run it.  the true test, however, will be how my legs feel tomorrow climbing the wall of manitou :O

here are the race results from lightfoot runners.

the rest of my photos are on facebook.  and thanks to tony for getting a great shot of the start!
