4 seconds

That's how much I missed my goal by. You see, I really wanted to beat a 10:00 mile on this race. And my finishing time was 2:11:04. If only I hadn't stopped to take off my shoe at mile 2. I thought my sock was bunched up. Turns out that my feet were frozen at the start and I was starting to get feeling back. It felt weird.

But still, a 10:00 mile isn't too shabby with an injured hip and a couple of gnarly hills. This was a gorgeous race. I can't even tell you how wonderful it was. Very enjoyable. I allowed myself to walk through the water stations. And I walked when I needed to. Like up parts of those hills.

I also learned that I do run faster without the I-pod. My splits were faster for the most part when I wasn't listening to it.

Time for bed. I'm beat. And I gotta go to work tomorrow.
