Nice race today in cruddy conditions. Puddles, slush, ice and snow on the ground, and a light rain started to fall during mile 7. Lots of difficult footing at times around huge puddles, a few icy patches, and some wind, particularly on the west side of Lake Harriet (mile 7ish). Still, felt pretty good out there, especially for the first race of the season. Got a shoulder stitch around mile 6.1 ... Around mile 6 I picked up the pace, and around mile 7 I thought that maybe breaking 1:20 would be possible.
Happy with the run, first race of the season, but would have loved to have broken 1:20:00. Next time. Used restroom at mile 3.5, and that slowed me down ... need to get more efficient at that. ;-)
