First 8K race and a great time. Weather was a little chilly at first, but it soon warmed up to a cool, sunny day. Hydrated well the day before and tried to go into the race nice & relaxed. Started much closer to the front than I usually do, but I wanted to stay out of the way of walkers b/c I've been working toward a goal time of 54:40 (an 11 min/mi pace). I thought I might be able to beat it, but wasn't expecting to beat it by about 1 min/mi. Fueled well throughout: took a precautionary Clif Shot before the race & another at 2, just for the electrolytes. Course was pretty. Felt nice being able to pass people & stay with the midpack crowd, although they're much less talkative & fun. Really pleased w/ the progress I've made with the Pfitzinger plans.
