I ran the Groundhog 7 yesterday afternoon. The weather was just about perfect and after last week’s snow storm the roads were in great shape. There were a few spots on and around the rail trail that still had some ice and snow, but they were not a problem. As usual I went out a little too fast in the first mile (6:30) but managed hang in there and ran all but the 4th mile (7:05) under 7 minutes.
I finished 31st out of 270 with a time of 48:18. My goal was to keep it under 49 minutes, so I’m pretty happy with the result.
