Total time 1:11:48, total distance 10 miles , average pace 7:15. 3rd place in our division. We kept our core of our 3 usual gals (Angelica, Megan, and myself) and recruited Barbara to be our 4th angel.
It was hot. Over 100 degrees. I was worried, because I do almost no running in heat, because most of my runs are before the sun comes out or in the early morning. Plus, like last year, I did my long run earlier that day. The long run went better than last week, but still not where I should be.
Before the race, I was dealing with stupid Tropical Storm Lee and my trip, 2 upsetting phone calls from my Dr. and the Endocrinologist, and not feeling all that great. I think the stress from all of the above was really getting to me and causing me to feel poorly.
Despite that, I ran over a minute faster than last year. Ran the 2nd fastest time on the team (narrow margin). Beat a girl who was a track star at my high school.
