Natal Day Road Race

Apparently this is the 108th year for the Dartmouth Natal Day Road Race, but it's the first year I've ever heard of it!  I'm glad a fellow runner at work told me about it with enough time for me to sign up.  I'll be sure to sign up again next year.

It was only 2 miles (3.22 km).  I woke up to the pouring rain, which makes for a nice cool run in August, but I would like to run at least one race this year where I'm not soaking wet.  It didn't actually rain to much during the race itself, but the humidity was high.

I haven't been running very much this summer, so I didn't have high expectations for finishing with a great time.  I was pleased to finish with 27:18, keeping in line with my never changing pace of 8:30/km.  I was in awe of the runners who finished in a speedy 10 minutes!

Now I need to find my next race to sign up for.  I love having something concrete to work towards.
