I'm really happy with this run. I was shooting for something in between 95-97 minutes for this race but I got 98. The race was organized by the high school track and field so the course was their training route (wink wink hilly route) from mile 1 until 3 we were climbing and then a short down hill to start another climb all of this we were going east and the wind was on our left side so it wasn't a big factor yet, but after  .5 mile climb we turned left or north and this is when every thing went crazy we ran a 3.5 miles up hill into the north head wind. I passed 4 very fast runners but they were just fed up with wind and the climbing . Thanks god  its down hill from mile 7.5-9.5 so I tried to recover on this section. whoever designed this course is a mean coach. He made sure as soon as we turned right from the down hill you see the 10 miles marker but you climb from that flag all the way to mile 12.5. the rest is through the school parking lot  going through the track once which I tend to hate the lap I prefer home stretch. I'm really happy with 98 minutes result. I did not taper so I ran on tired legs(intentionally) adding all the hills and wind this was a good workout for next month's marathon. no running sunday, but back on the road monday.

Great race Yasir! Impressive.

Hills and wind, probably off-roading too? They should do it on sand dunes next time, just to add a little variety.

Good job on a tough day plus training through, hopefully the marathon is on a regular course!

Oh, wow! "whoever designed this course is a mean coach" -that cracked me up. Sounds brutal! Way to fight it out, Yasir!

Tough course. Nice job Yasir! Impressive time.

Nice race on a tough course and tired legs. That should give you some good confidence for the upcoming marathon.

Way to go! We are so proud of you! Now keep the good work going but listen to your body!

From Kam on Fri, Mar 20, 2015 at 10:25:19 from

Sounds like a brutal course. Nice work!

Don't know how I missed you running this race...I guess because I haven't been on the blog much. Nice to see you're happy with your performance. A great stepping stone to improvement!
