Gopher the Gold 10K Overall Female. Yaaay!

Ok. Ok. I know I said today's race was not a PR course and I had little expectations. Boy, did I underestimate. It turns out that I not only got a 10K PR but ended up winning the race. It was a nice surprise!

Time was 42:07 (6:48 pace). This was no easy course. It had some nice hills and about 1/3 of it was on trails, though the trails weren't too technical. Since it rained the entire time, the dirt was rather slippery!

Here are some photos:

  1. I was looking to find my results for this race by putting Gopher the Gold in Google and your blog comes up. Turns out, I was directly in front of you I'd say, the last 2 miles of the race or so. Congrats on the PR :)
