2010 Resolution Run 10K Race Report
Happy 2k10 to ya! This year has started off in much the same tradition as the past 5, with a 10k run at high noon.
This year’s Atlanta Track Club Resolution Run marked a major departure from years past. This used to be a low-key event where you registered only on race day, it was free to members ($5 to non-members) and maybe 400 people or so ran it. This year, pre-registration was mandatory, it was chip timed, and around 1700 people signed up between the 5k and 10k.
The temperature at
race start was somewhere between 35 and 40, with 10mph winds. It was very difficult to dress for this event. There were times I felt overdressed (no wind and in the sun) and times that I froze my ass off (shade and wind). I simply couldn’t win. In the end, I ran my best for the day and turned in a reasonable 56 minute time. That’s a full minute per mile slower than when I turned in a 49:xx time in 2008. Most importantly, I had a good time and started the new year off right.
