Race: Club Challenge 10 Miler
Date: Feb 23, 2014
Location: Columbia, MD
Finish Time: 1:11:36
The Club Challenge 10 Miler is an annual 10 Miler race put on by the Howard County Strides. It felt like a small race but with over 700 finishers its more of a mid-size one. When I think of "small" I think of like 300 participants. This race was a haul to get to and started at 8:00am so that meant an early morning, but I'm glad I met up with my running club for a good hill workout!
This event is really about camaraderie among runners and seeing which clubs bring out the most participants. The course was challenging and hilly, but I still knew several people who posted PRs that day. Decidedly taking it easy, I was able to enjoy myself, get a good workout on the hills, and progressively push harder through the race.
