This race is a fundraiser for a local private school, St. James, who is trying to build a track facility. Last year, I ran the 5k, but this year I wanted to run the 10k. It was a different course, much hillier and also warmer this year, and I did not do quite as well as I wanted.
As you can see, it was a rolling hill course, and I managed to run an 8:58 pace, and finished a full 16:30 faster than my only other 10k over a year ago. But back then I weighed 55 pounds more, too.
