2012 Morton Pumpkin Festival 10K – 46:45


Race Takeaway: You don’t use it, you lose it.

I’m behind in posting so this is a catch up. Rob and I ran the Morton Pumpkin Festival 10K on Saturday, September 15th. It was perfect weather, low 60s and no breeze. The race is flat and the mile splits are well-marked.

While I was not in old race shape, it felt good to be racing. I was happy with my ability to keep the pace I did considering I’m still trying to get back into training.

Rob finished in 41:44 and I finished with 46:45, fourth in the 30-39 age group. I haven’t raced this race in four years. They have added a finish medal, which is a nice touch.
