Miracle Miles 15K

This morning was the Miracle Miles 15K, a fundraiser for a children's hospital. I hadn't been doing many long runs at all; this one was nearly twice the length of my longest run in several weeks. Thus I didn't really expect to set a PR or race it - instead I just wanted to stick to my planned marathon pace, ~9 min/mile.

That worked out pretty well, because I did 1:22:39 for an 8:50 mile, finishing 31/67 in my division. I'm actually shocked I placed that high in the division with that finishing time.

I ran with the Forerunner 305, but unfortunately I didn't get a GPS lock until about 2/3rds the way through the race. Argh, next time I'll turn it on earlier.
