Flight back home last night for a wedding today, figured i'd get up and run this morning, but had to drive all the way to Cedar Rapids to do so. early morning, but worth it. Been raining all day, all morning too, but stopped right before the race - although it was spitting during the entire race. Other than that, weather was perfect for running, mid-50s and light winds. Course was going to be short and I knew that ahead of time, so I told myself I would run through the finish line and keep going til my watch hit 10k so I'd have an accurate time. Warmup went well, despite some stomach issues, ran hard the whole race and felt super easy at the paces I was running. Definitely an effort, but manageable! I crossed the finish line in 35:12, but my watch was at around 6.14 miles, so I kept running til 6.21, took about another 20 seconds. Here are the splits from my brand new PR:

1- 5:39

2- 5:42

3- 5:42

4- 5:45

5- 5:45

6 - 5:43

.21 - 1:13

Total 35:32, 5:43 avg pace, amazed at how even my splits were today! all within 6 seconds of each other. new PR by 13 seconds, but based on how manageable the pace felt, I think I had more left in me, and so if I get another crack at the 10k this fall, I think I can take off another 10-20 seconds. 3 mile cool down
