This morning was the annual Makin'
. As this starts three blocks from my house, supports the track
, a small college up the
street from me, and runs right through my immediate neighbourhood, it's hard
not to participate. This year was of course not even a week after the
somewhat eventful Chicago
Marathon in record-heat
so I wasn't sure how well I'd do. Once again, I
started way too fast and ran two miles at a 6:00 min/mile pace that I
couldn't sustain just a week after a (arguably slow but still full distance)
marathon, so I slowed down and finished at 19:41.7 or so for a pace of 6:23,
or about eight seconds slower than my best time from last
(when we ran before the marathon). Onto the Frank Lloyd Wright 5k/10k
next week, then!
