28 days until the NYC Marathon!, by @wmbakester

Forgot to post this yesterday, but Sunday I ran in the Twin Cities Medtronic 10-mile race—my longest race ever, and handily beat my goal of finishing in 1:20:00 (an 8:00-mile pace). I actually hung with the 1:15:00 pacer until mile 5 when a hill through me off my pace, and I just could not regain the lost ground.

But still, I'm not going to complain about finishing in 1:16:30 (a 7:39-mile pace) for my first-ever 10-mile race.
