10 miles in 82 minutes
The trail was right next to the river, which I'm assuming made the wind chill even worse, but I know if I was suffering so were all the other runners! One thing that was of noticed was the trail contained several "bridges" and believe me running over these bridges was weird!! They were the whole rope and wood kind of bridges, so with several people running over them at the same time the bridge would sway and move and therefore make you feel like you were about to lose your balance! Throughout the run I felt as if my pace was getting slower and slower but since the run was a loop when I finally reached mile 9 I looked over and saw the clock and saw 1:15 I wanted to finish in 80 minutes so I picked up my pace and eventually finished in 1:22, 2 mile over, but just doing the math I did a 7 minute last mile which is pretty good if you ask me! Anyway I'm consoling myself saying if there wasn't the wind I'm sure I would have finished in 80 minutes, it was only 2 minutes over. The bf finished about 25 minutes after me, which I think is pretty impressive given he only trained for a week.
That was my last run of the year, I have 2 half marathons early next year up in Austin and really can't wait for them!
