Today I ran my best 10K race (6.2 miles) at the West Bloomfield Rock and Road. My official time was 54:43 (mm:ss), which was 8:15 (mm:ss) faster than my previous record. Almost a 15% improvement in the span of one year.
This was my second year running this race, and I will probably run it again next year. I like this course because it is a mixture of roads, hilly trails, flat trails, and grassy hills. Plus it always seems to rain a day or two beforehand. So the opportunity to get some mud on your shoes and legs are pretty good.
