8:00 am) 50's Sunny!
Ran the Garden of the Gods 10 mile race course. I wanted to
see how hard it would be and get myself mentally ready for it.
I pushed very hard almost race effort. I ran 1:06:40 for 10
miles. I hope to run around 1:03:00 on race day. Some of the
hills almost had me at a crawl by the time I reached the tops.
Hopefully on race day I will be stronger than today. I had
to stop 2 times just to catch my breath.

Your post suggests that the total elevation gain for the GOG 10 mile race is about 1195 feet. Did I interpret that correctly?

Yes, That would be correct. I got the info off my Garmin 405 watch so take it for what it's worth.
