Shiver by the River 10k race (there was also a 5k option - 10k is the 5k loop twice). First of four in a winter series run on the 2nd Sunday of the month Dec through March. Low 30s and sunny but with a 10mph breeze out of the west. Roads mostly clear after 4-5" of snow yesterday - a few icy spots but not really enough to affect speed. Course has a few gentle ups and downs. Target was about 55min with even pacing. Did much better than I usually do with the pacing, with the 2nd 5k only about 10 sec slower (and that included a water stop where I walked a bit to drink). And the pace turned out to be about 15sec/mile quicker than my guesstimate, so happy with that. Was 45th overall in the 10k (115 total in the 10k), 7th in M60-64.
