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!
