Bellin Run 10k

6.2 Miles 35:52 *PR* 5:47 average per mile
8:00 am) 60's cloudy Humid
52 Overall out of 15,000+ finishers
6 out of 621 age group 35-39

My best Bellin yet. I didn't run last year due to injury. I was happy
to run it again this year. My Bellin best was 37:44 in 2008. So
almost 2 minutes off my best Bellin. My best 10k time was also in
2008 36:30 so about 40 seconds better than previous 10k PR.

I hit the 5k split in 17:44 only 4 seconds of my 5k PR. So I new I
was running well I just had to hold it together. Mile 4-5 was tough
I felt a loss of energy. Mile 5-6 I felt I recovered somewhat and
finished feeling good.

Stuck around afterwards and watched the awards ceremony. My
friend Mike placed 3rd in his age group. Way to go Mike! Talked
to Uta Pippig for a bit she is so nice. She was giving Mike and I advice on training.

Next up Grandma's marathon next Saturday. I hope to PR again.
Will see the weather could be a major factor. Hoping for cloudy
cool weather.
