Another boring flat mug run in Lakewood (about 5 miles north of my house in Long Beach). I felt sluggish most of the way, but strangely enough, I was able to run with Steve Singer for about 3 miles.
My pace was comparable to my race at Alondra Park, but I didn’t feel like I could maintain this fast pace. Nonetheless, I finished in 42:37, and improved my 10K PR by 2 more seconds. Strange times… Heck, I even won my age group and this mug run had over 100 participants!
