14mi*/1:25 - Granite State 10miler - 55:51 (5:35) - 1st place.
It was a windy chilly day. I sat behind Eric Williams through the first half of the race and then opened up a small gap on a downhill after the 5mile mark. (28:44). I was able to increase my lead and get the win running a nice negative split. (27:07). It is mostly downhill in the second half. I'm happy with this race. It's a tough course so the time is better than it appears. Jen and I did this race to celebrate our 3rd anniversary. It's become our anniversary tradition and it's a fun one. Jen joked after her race, "Why didn't we pick a 5K? 10 miles is tough!"
Total for the week:
43mi. Ok week. Last week of XC season!
