Another weekend, another race. But who can turn down a free 10 miler? Saturday I ran the Rocket Run Ten Miler in Mooresville, AL, a very small town about 15mi west of Huntsville. The race is free for Huntsville Track Club members, so there really wasnt any reason not do it. (Incidentally, if you live or around Huntsville and arent a member of the HTC, sign up! Its only $12 and you get multiple free race entries, along with other benefits, so it more than pays for itself.) Local fast guy Josh Whitehead and kicked all of our butts, running 52:19 while I was second in a comfortable 56:30.
After a first mile of 5:49, I kept miles 2-7 between 5:40 and 5:40, then started bringing it down, finishing up with a pretty controlled 5:25 last mile. With Josh out of sight after the second mile, I was all alone out there for most of the race, but it was kind of nice to get in a rhythm and go. After helping break the course down and clean up, it was off to Cracker Barrel for some post race deliciousness.
