As part of my weekly long run, I participated in the Sugar Land Finish Line Sports 30K. This 18.6 miler was the longest race I have ever done in the state of Texas. Better yet, it was my first beyond a few 5K races. It was primarily a loop course in an upscale suburb of Sugar Land around First Colony Mall. I took 10th out of 95 in my division, and 57th out of 1115 runners overall. I held a 7 minute pace for the event. The course was extremely flat. I ran the first 15K at 7:05 pace, and the second 15K at 6:59 for a 2:10.46 time.

Total training miles for the week: 80
