25:08 at 5 miles, 49:23 at 10 miles

Total 104 miles

Good race, bummer not to be able to close out the last 3 miles, but extremely happy with the time and win. Back in 2011, I hit 10 miles in about 49:45. I was a bit faster this year at 10 miles but the wind made it very hard to push those last 3 miles.  Hopefully with longer tempos, I should feel stronger. Considering that in 2011 I was 13 weeks into my training, I definitely think there is a lot of room for improvement.
