L.A Chinatown Firecracker Run - 10K

Ran my first official race after a 3 year hiatus. Decided to test myself with a 10K (, and it was a good thing because, even though I signed up a month ago, I didn't get time to train at all. The course was a little tough, with a 600 foot climb in the first 2.5 miles. But, luckily the finish was the same as the start, which meant there was a 600 foot drop over the rest of the course. I realized how bad I am with downhill running (some shin issues in the left foot didn't help either). Overall, I wasn't disappointed with the results at all:

Time: 50:44
Pace: 8:09/mile
Division: 10K

Overall Place: 216/2353 | 9.2%
Age Group Place: 33/208 | 15.9%
