I ran in the Shelley Spud Run Half Marathon on a beautiful morning! Craig Hudman is the RD and does a great job on this small race. 1M warmup then into the race. I ran solo for the whole race so this was mostly a MP tempo run. Good hill in miles 5 and 6, gravel road in my 7, headwind in mile 11 plus loss of focus on keeping my pace solid on this nearly pancake flat course. Cruised in for the win, racing the top 5K guys as I came back into town helped with the motivation so I sped up for the last 0.5 mile or so. Fun time this morning, wish I would have stayed more focused to run closer to 6:00 AP. Ran a bit of a cool down (2M) and some (1M) with Saige.
