Okay, its the first 15k race I've run so no matter what my time was, it was going to be a PR. But, I was very happy with my running. The Peachtree City Classic 15k is an awesome race and I plan on running it again in future years. The first 2-3 miles is on streets, but after the field spreads out, the rest of the course is on golf cart paths. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Peachtree City, its a planned community with 100's of miles of golf cart paths. So most of the race you are running in the woods, enjoying nature, kind of like a nice weekend run with 1500 friends. They limit the field to 1500 so it doesn't feel crowded at all. My goal was to run a 10:40 pace, but weather conditions were ideal (50 degrees and overcast skies) so I was able to run a 1:36:37. My split times were:
Miles 1 and 2 21:14 (I missed seeing the first mile marker)
Mile 3 10:24
Mile 4 10:55
Mile 5 10:38
Mile 6 10:18
Mile 7 10:22
Mile 8 10:05
Mile 9 9:53
Last .3 2:48
