Baltimore 10 Miler Race Recap

Saturday morning started bright and early and it was a beautiful morning for a run.

We arrived at the race start around 6:15, got ready, and did a short warm-up jog. We lined up right by the 8 minute pace group and the goal was to keep that 8 minute pace.

For the first 5 miles we stayed right behind or right in front of the 8 minute pacers and we felt pretty strong.

We were able to stick with the group until about mile 7-8 and then we hit the wall. The course got very hilly and we just couldn’t keep up. I was actually feeling pretty good, except my feet were screaming. I was definitely working on some pretty nasty blisters. I really wanted to take a picture of them, but I don’t want you guys to stop reading :-).

I pushed through to the end…I had to beat the old guy with long white hair that came up on me when I could see the finish line. I ended up finishing in 1:21:54. Since this was my first 10 miler, it’s a new PR! Lol.

After the race we sat in the grass and enjoyed a few cold (and free) beverages.

Me, Serge, and Rebecca. We all finished within a few minutes of each other.

The race premium was super nice this year. This jacket is actually pretty heavy and will be great for cooler weather.
