I took the starting line in Washington DC at the Army 10 miler with 21,289 other people on Oct 4th. It could not have a better day for a 10 mile run through DC. I was fortunate to be wearing the new Saucony Triumph 7’s. I had received them a couple of days before. Not only do they look fast, they made me feel fast.
I set a PR of 1:11:53 finish, which put me on a 7:11/mile pace. I did not start with that in mind. The first 2 miles rolled by at 8:00/mile pace and then the congestion thinned out and I eased the speed up a little mile after mile. Next thing I knew the finish line was in sight.
Finish – 1:11:53
Overall – 1306 of 21,289
Men – 1168 of 11690
