Innaugural FORTitude 10k. Was fun to be a part of what will certainly someday become a huge event. Weird blood-red sun this morning with all the smoke haze from the wildfires, created kind of an eerie aura, but at least the temp was reasonable. Did not feel great during my warmup, but was hopeful to be under 37 minutes. Was in group A and had a pretty good race I thought. Course was very favorable, much flatter than BolderBoulder and even a little lower elevation. However, I was confused by my watch splits as they didn't really match up with the official splits. my watch had the course as .7-.8 long, which if true was probably 20-25 seconds - even if it was only half that long though, its still a sufficient enough time gap to have kept me above 37 minutes officially. My watch had 5:55 avg, but my official time was 5:58 avg and 37:07. Either way, my goal was to keep this around that pace and get a good tempo in as this pace is my GHMP because at lower altitude I would be a bout 8-10 seconds faster and so actually faster tempo than my Goal half pace. Here are my official splits:

1 - 6:03

2 - 5:59

3- 5;58

4 - 5:55

5- 5:56

6 - 6:07

Total 37:07, 5:58-59 pace

negative split according to the official splits by a few seconds, but according to my watch i was at 18:37 at the 5k marker (which was a course marker), which means I went 18:30 and a 7 second negative split on the 2nd 5k. overall, a very positive race and I got exactly out of it what I wanted - a strong tempo and a fun race. Good cooldown and 11 miles overall

very nice run tonight, felt kinda rough through 6-7 miles, but then settled in and hammered it through for 13.3 in 7:18 avg pace overall, +strides, warm night, upper 70s, low 80s, but east wind blowing helped a little, felt good to get a longer run in

11.6 tonight, picked up right where I left off yesterday with the 7:08 paces, in fact strung out several eerily similar splits in a row for much of the run, slower first two miles made the average for the 11.6 7:10 avg pace, strides after, another warm run but felt decent if not a lil tired
