Mountain to Fountain 15K

Mountain to Fountain 15K
Fountain Hills, Arizona
Mileage - 9.3
Time - 51:10
Pace - 5:29
Place - 15th

Fast and furious is how this one went down in Fountain Hills on Sunday morning. By fast I mean the first rolling 10K coming out of the McDowell Mountain Regional Park, which I believe I ran a 40 second PR. Man, it felt good to run fast! Furious were the hills after the 10K mark, which I believe is where I blew up. Leg turnover was fine, I just hadn't done enough anaerobic training to help buffer that kind of intensity. Miles 8 through 9 were a bit of a blur, though I do remember regrouping and actually gaining ground on the couple of guys that passed me early on. I think if the race had gone on another mile or so I could have moved up in position. Overall it was a great race and a fun event with friends. I want to thank Susan Loken, our elite coordinator and all the volunteers and race staff. Keep this one going!
