2012 Silvermine 25K - 1:43:37 / 6:40

Net time: 1:43:37 (PR)
Pace: 6:40
Rank: 32/252

Even though this was my 4th straight Silvermine 25K, I was still in for a rude awakening. Battling these hills are always tougher than CP or PP. Although I was a bit bummed to miss Coogans for a team's points race, I felt I needed this race to prepare for Boston '12. Silvermine marked the inaugural race of using the Brooks PureFlow. These shoes offer less support and it definitely took a bit to get used to. Yes, there were times where I was wincing with pain, but I just need to get accustom to the shoes with "less support". Overall, as painful as it sounds, the pain subsided after mile 10 and I was able to notch a haircut 5 minute PR. I hope to make another trip to Silvermine in 2013 for more Boston preparations.
