Peachtree Road Race today really fun as my whole family participated with my wife and two of my daughters walking/jogging and with Riley and I running.
My "A goal" was high 42 mins to mid 43; my "B goal" if the temps and humidity was bad was to try to keep it under 45 mins. So with a "red flag" warning out today - I was ok with hitting my B goal today.
I got placed in the B wave and was quite frustrated for nearly the while first mile trying to find space to get on pace. Splits were 7:14, 6:39, 6:29, 7:30, 7:27, 7:21. The second half of the rest is primarily a series of uphills.
Ran nearly 3 mins faster than last year. I can live with the result today. Felt relatively fine afterwards and feel good about my fitness trending better each month since the spring. Marathon in the fall.
