Midnight Sun Run

I just finished the Fairbanks Midnight Sun Run with an average pace of 12:49 min/mile (according to my Nike+ gadget). This is my first 10k in a long, long time. I ran the first 1½ miles then walked for about a mile, then jogged for the rest of the race. It was the largest ever turnout for this race with about 3,500 official entrants. The race started at 10:00 pm with a shot from a howitzer courtesy of Fort Wainright and if the weather was nice, it would have been bright and sunny. As it was, it was cool and rainy. Not the best possible weather. I was originally planning on just walking the course but felt like pushing myself some and see how I would do. I think I would've done better if I was jogging/running on a regular basis. There's always next year.
