First race of the year down

Today I did my first race of 2014 and also my first 4 miler.

Weather was great, a little cold and especially because I forgot my gloves, but it was bearable.

I've never done a 4 mile race before because it's a very weird distance that doesn't get offer too often. I average a 6:20 pace and ended in 25:29. Got an awesome coffee mug for getting second place in my age group and also finished 14th overall. I wish I had my GPS watch to see my actual time for each mile.

I haven't ran that much this year but core/strength training has helped me a lot and I felt like my upper body form was great today.

This race is also part of the Fredericksburg Gran Prix Series and I was award 974 points out of 1,000.
