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.


Did you race this weekend?
Any PRs?
