Dave’s 10-Miler & 5k on January 21, 2018

This is my next ‘distance’ race. And 2018 seems SOOO far away, but holy geez it’s in a couple of weeks. 

I ran the 10-Miler in 2016 and, while it was a blustery and chilly day, it wasn’t as miserable as previous races have been. Delta, Ohio isn’t a great destination for running. Why? Because it is flat farmland with zero windbreaks. There are minimal hills in NW Ohio and our largest ‘hills’ are freeway overpasses. We go over two of them and they can be challenging if you’re used to flat road runs. Don’t get me wrong! I love this race (and Delta) and the obstacles it throws at you, but visually…not the best.

The great thing about running the 10-Miler in January is that I am already at a great training distance in my long runs to prep for the Owens Corning Half Marathon on Sunday, April 22, 2018. My 10-Miler time was pitiful and I think I can set a new PR by about 10 minutes.

I am looking to smash my current half PR by 20-25 minutes. I set my PR years ago and my running/heart/knee have all improved significantly and I am ready to kick some serious ass.

REALLY looking forward to getting back to distance running.

Are you running this race?
Have you run it before?
