Pacific Spirit 10K Trail

Well, this is my first race since getting back to Canada. A 10K race through the Endowment Lands. The course was relatively flat, not too technical. I've run most of it many times in training since getting here, so knew what to expect. There were a lot of runners, so they staggered the start. Good thing, otherwise, it would have been crowded on parts of the course. I felt good and strong the whole way. No problems at all. I finished in 42:28 ... not as fast as I'd hoped, but good enough for 4th overall. I didn't get chicked ... a sure sign that I'm not in Oregon anymore :(

Today was the Mac. I really miss the Corvallis crew.
