(By the way, this run is the first in a series of trail races that Fleet Feet puts on every year called the Brooks Run Santa Cruz Race Series. The next one will be on June 15th in Nisene Marks State Park, while the third one will be September 21st with the location to be announced. You should sign up because the races are fun, festive, and small enough that you might have a chance of placing!)
I had three different goals for the 10k race, and I wanted to make sure I did at least one of them:
- Beat my time from last year (1:05:08)
- Beat my 10k PR (1:01:30, which I set during the second race in the series last year)
- Finish in less than one hour
The result – I crossed the finish line in 59:46.
All in all, not a bad day!
