I totally crushed the first two miles! Like, CRUSHED them! I was on pace for a 1+ minute PR. The last mile of the course is pretty tough though - like a mile of gradual uphill the entire way. My pace fell apart, but I did much better taking on that hill than last year. My third mile was about two minutes slower than my first two miles. Don't worry, the last .1 I kicked it back up and finished strong. I have to embrace the fact that I carried my goal pace for two solid miles, so I know what I am capable of for those fall races!
There were some pretty sweet raffle prizes including gift cards to local stores and restaurants and 4 sets of tickets to upcoming Braves games. Sadly, we didn't win any prizes, but thank you to the sponsors for donating these awesome prizes to the race.
