Yesterday was one of my planned races before my current goal of a half-marathon this year. This particular 10k race is in my hometown and draws about 5000 people every year so it's equal parts race and festivities.
As the course is rather flat and I've now spent 4 months working on running form and transitioning to minimalist shoes, I was hoping to be able to get close to my personal best from 4 years ago (which was the last time I did some serious running).
During the race I felt strong, in control and light on my feet. It felt surprisingly well even though I was pacing myself to end up close to my PB. In the end I slowed down a little bit and ended up at a time that was 15 s from my previous best time. Since I'm currently only at week 4 in the foundation program, I'm looking forward to crushing this time later this year :)
