Was happy I made the commitment for two reasons: 1. no baby I am aware of and 2.November is the time in the season when you feeling done with long distance but still wanting to get a few races in before Chicago gets really cold.
Once it was time to begin, we were off quickly. The race got a little crowded in some areas but overall, it was a nice perfect day for a run. I wore a jacket and 3/4 capris and was plenty warm. Standard lakeshore path race with a little clog up around the aquarium as always. There is nothing fancy or exciting about the course which is plenty fine with me. I love the gimmecky races but sometimes an old fashion run is just what you need.
Finished with a time of 1:05:00 even. Pace 10:27/mile. Considering I walked a bit when i saw a friend unexpectedly, i was happy with results. Nice to feel like i got a tad faster this year.
