Bermuda International Race Weekend 10K Run

Today I ran my first 10K, as part of the Bermuda International Race Weekend, and annual event that also includes events for the mile and half/full marathons.

The weather was miserable, raining before, during, and after the race. I wasn't cold during the run, but almost as soon as it was over, I was freezing. I start out the race at a fairly quick pace, doing my first mile in 6:20. While I felt like I ran a pretty consistent pace for most of the race, quite a few people passed me. In the last 400 meters I sped up and passed 3 or 4 people, including one person in a sprint to the finish line. As I neared the finish, I spotted the clock and realized I had shot at my goal for the race, but it was going to be close. So I sprinted faster right through the finish, just beat my goal of sub-45 minutes, with a time of 44:54.

Next step is to start running further distances. 10K is about the longest distance that I have ran, but my goal to to run the Bermuda Day Half Marathon in May, which is about 21K (13.1 miles). I have a long way to go before I can do that.
