Clamdigger 2010

After a week of sloth-like behavior in Arizona with my family, I finally got back to running. Today was the WTAC's Clamdigger 5 mile road race. I headed out at 9:45 for the mercifully late 11:00 start. It was a good day for the race - cold, but not much wind, and Misquamicut seems to have dried out from our recent flood. I started the race too fast - a 6:45 first mile which I knew I couldn't keep up over 5 miles and I wasn't too disappointed when I hit the second mile at 14 even. I managed to hold on to the 7:15 pace each mile until the end - a 35:46 - good for a 7:09 min/mile pace. I'm ok with that - though not thrilled. I was also a little bummed at the 9th place age group finish - some fast dudes out at those WTAC races.
