This morning I ran the Lake Union 10K as part of a corporate challenge with a handful of folks from my work. During this race my old boss' advice from work was screaming in my head - the advice? "You have to go slow to go fast." I went out WAY too fast starting my first mile at a 6:03, then doing a 6:10, and then finishing the race with an average of 7:10 - the last few miles were horrible.
That said, I came in 5th female out of 1058. Next time I'm going to pace, though!!!
