I completed the Moose On The Loose trail run this morning--10 miles (though Nike+ says slightly less). I finished in 1 hour, 21 minutes and 54 seconds. I beat my personal record (PR, for those of you keeping score at home) on a 10-mile course by nearly 8 minutes (previous best of 1:29'47"). I can't tell you how happy I am with my performance.
As you can see from the graph, I was pretty steady until I really turned it on during the last two miles. I focused on lengthening my stride rather than trying to run faster. Turns out I did both, getting to a pace of 7:45/7:50 for most of the last 2 miles.
Needless to say, I'm overjoyed with my performance, as running 8 minutes faster is a huge improvement on a 10-mile course. I also wasn't as dead afterwards as I was after the Broad Street Run. As far as running days go, this was one of my top ones!
