Rock Run 8k

by on May.29, 2010, under Mavia, Races

Had a good race this morning.  Had only run a couple times this week as I had been out of town.  I’m a little frustrated that my mile 3-4 were not down in the 7:30 pace but that’s ok.  Had a good finish.  I think I am running hard, but not racing.  I try to make sure that I do not run out of gas on the course and I don’t, but I wonder how much more I could do if I could push myself harder.  Now, with that said, I felt real good today.  Had a nice first mile, stayed controlled and relaxed the entire race and finished relatively strong.  It was a beautiful day and race route and I got second place in my age division (that is because 2 others placed in the senior masters divisions and can not place in the 50-54 age group, otherwise I would have been 4th).  Just off the golf course where I shot a 75 (best round of the year!), 3 over on the front and even on the back so it’s been a good day and a great start to a Memorial Day weekend. 

We got new Conway Running Club singlets to run in and Judy had them at the race today.  I ordered a shirt but not a singlet.  I’ve committed to run all of my races for Mavia and remember the families who are fighting NF.  I don’t wear it any other time and don’t run a race without it.  It’s added an element to my racing and I deeply hope that some day they will find a way to treat and cure NF.  It is definitely possible.
