Volusia/Flagler Hospice 10K

Sunday was the Volusia/Flagler Hospice 5K and 10K run. Hospice has helped my family with loved ones and I love being able to participate in the race. This was the first year they have added the 10K so I was excited as I am building mileage toward my first marathon in November.

I have a 10K PR of 44:22 so I was hoping to have at least that time. I started off a little fast with a 6:29 1st mile and 6:31 2nd mile so I slowed down a bit. Felt good until the 4 mile mark then started to slow my pace. I was in 3rd place at that point and ended up being passed by 2 people before the finish.

My time was 44:26 so basically the same as in February. This time I won my age group and placed 5th overall. This was my best showing in a race so far so I felt great. I will continue to improve my running over the winter so when triathlon season comes back around, I will be ready to race.
