Race started across from the peggy notebart and I parked in the LPZoo. Not cheap ($22 bucks i think) but easy and takes the stress out of finding a street spot.
Was an out and back course that started around 2400 N and turned around ~4200N. The weather was a bit chilly for an October day. 37 degrees at the start. I had no time goal for this race, just the miles. Splits were: 10:38, 10:32, 10:54, 10:41, 11:00, 10:50 for an average pace of 10:45. I had to take a bit extra of a walking break at mile 5. My gloves were getting hot and took them off and ended up dropping one and took a bit to go back 5 feet, wait for an opening and grabbing it. But other than that, I maintained a good pace and felt good.
Finish had a lot of stuff. Lots of food, freebies and raffles for shoes. I had to get back to family so didn't stick around but for the discounted entry, charity component, standard lakepath course, I was happy I participated.
