i needed some kind of organized event to keep my streak going (now at 28 months, but who's counting), and the columbia winery 10k was it.
it was my first non-trail event in a long time. the last one was the lake chelan marathon, which was september 2013. apparently i like trails.
anyhoo... columbia winery. a fundraiser for seattle children's hospital.
the course, in part on the sammamish river trail (which i run often), was flat and fast. much faster than i'm used to running.
on unpaved trails i generally run 9- to 11-minute miles. saturday i ran at a 7:15 minute/mile pace. not fast compared to most, but for me it was moving right along.
turns out it was good enough for a PR at the 10k distance.
no, i didn't drink wine afterward. it was 9:30 in the morning.
but i did notice columbia makes a grenache rosé, which i am going to have to check into.
