2nd Fortitude 10k today. Had a good time at this race last year so I came back again, this time healthier, finally. warmed up for 1.7-2 miles, easy paced with some strides. Race itself went amazing, felt wonderful through about 8k, felt really good throughout, but just lost a little at the end since I wasn't trained through much more than 5 miles for speed. Splits were as follows: 

1 - 5:53

2 - 5:44

3 - 5:49

4 - 5:43

5 - 5:49

6 - 5:53

.21 - 1:XX

Total - 36:18, 5:51 avg pace

Split about 18:09 first 5k, then split about the same exact last 5k, 18:09, very even splits, felt really strong. Had a guy come up near me at the middle of the race and we just picked off people together the 2nd half, he was doing about the same tempo I was. Felt really good and finally strong and healthy for a change. This race was at 5000 feet, so I'm positive that at sea level, I would have set a massive PR today. The translator calculator I used said 35:11 equivalent if I wasn't at altitude - a stunning 35 second PR! Overall, very happy with today's race, felt good and a really solid mark of where I am fitness-wise. 4.4ish cooldown
