I’ve only run a few 10km’s since turning 40.  It isn’t easy these days to find a 10km race!  It seems like everything is either a 5km or a half-marathon, not much in between.  I’m aiming for a 40+ personal best this weekend at the James Joyce Ramble.  I’ll be disappointed if I don’t break 35:00 and my stretch goal is to break 34:30.

Here are my 10km’s over the last 7 years, only two of them were “flat” two were mountain type races and BOF runs about a minute slower than a normal 10km due to the big climb.
