Today I ran my first 2 mile race in 6 weeks. I gained a couple of pounds during my trip and I am not race fit, but it was good to get out there.
The weather was nice 50 F ( 9 C ) and it had rained a little earlier. Ran the first mile in 7:46, the second in 8:05 for a 15:51 time. I felt OK for the first mile and just tried to hold my form for the rest of the race, pushing in the last 50 meters.
