Waited for a strong finish again today. The weather was great….Fall has arrived.
Legs felt pretty good after a rest day but I decided to take it easy til the finish. Form and breathing focused run.
Great morning for a race, the fall temps were in full effect prior to race start. This was a pretty cool race because we got to walk through the National Air and Space Museum before the race to get to the start line(runway). I’d highly recommend anyone in the Chantilly, VA area to run or walk this race just for the experience. One thing we noticed during this race outside of the beautiful runway views was the poor location of the first water station; I don’t think the first station should be located at the 5k mark because your first time 10k runners might need a water station at the 1.5 or 2 mile mark. On to my performance, I was a couple minutes off a PR and this was a completely flat course so I have got to do a little better with my training but I did run all 6 miles at a sub 9 pace so that’s a positive. Welp, back to the trainer drawing board and trail.
Uptempo run today with the Eagles. I started to take it easy today but opted to run with the second wave of runners because the front of the pack was running sub 8 pace. Great weather for a run today, I welcome FALL.
