|Opening mile of the Des News 10K. Miles Batty (Asics, red) won it.|
A little belated since we left for vacation in Jackson immediately after the race, but here is the link to my full race report from the Deseret News 10K. The short story is that I ran 29:45 for 5th place, holding on for dear life after a ridiculously quick opening two miles. A positive takeaway is that I was finally able to out kick someone in the final stretch, which has been my weakness over the past month. Results.
I'm taking a couple weekends off from serious races and to get in a good chunk of training. Aiming for an Altitude-5K PR at the Dart 5K on 8/17 and then I'll be defending my title at the TOU Half Marathon on 8/24.

|Final stretch. Josh held me off by a second (for the third time this month!), but I was able to pass Brad.|
After my race was done, we got back out on the course to cheer on one of our best friends (Allie!) who ran 2:51 to win the marathon!!!
