Get in Gear 2013

Posted Saturday, April 27th, 2013 06:33 pm GMT -5 in Running

I think we all felt owed one after some hit and miss weather lately in Minnesota and today did not disappoint. This was my twelfth Get in Gear 10K in a row and it was a great one – sunny skies, temps near 50F at the start and a big turnout of smiling, happy runners.

After not using my Garmin all winter, I actually forgot how it worked and almost missed getting accurate info. My watch time was two seconds off the official time and reported rough splits of 6:30, 6:59, 7:13, 7:30, 7:25 and 7:24. I really couldn’t believe that first one and was afraid I blew any chance of a PR. After getting to the midway point around 20:00, I started dreaming of a sub-44 (or better).

Alas, that was not to be, but I did hang on for a seven second PR. Very happy to set the new mark, as I’m not getting any younger. Felt a bit of regret, though, as I really thought I could do better. Next time, perhaps…

Some other stats from the results page:

  • Official time of 44:40 (7:12 pace)
  • Overall: 255 out of 3141
  • Men: 191 out of 1374 Males
  • Age Group: 23 out of 184 Males in the M40-44 Age Group

Up next: TC 1 Mile on May 9
