I’ve only run two “stand-alone” 10K races in my life. The Rodes City Run in 2000 and 2001. These were some of the very first road races that I ran…and my times make that evident. I clocked a 55:51 in 2000 and a 52:17 in 2001. Since I started triathlons in 2009, I’ve logged two 10K running portions of tri’s in less than 46 minutes. So simply setting a PR in this race isn’t a big enough goal. I’m a fighting the early stages of what feels like a cold…and running with a head full of mucus isn’t much fun. If I was feeling 100%, I’d shoot for a time of 43 minutes in the morning, so I’m not going to make excuses – 43 minutes it is!
