Sallie Ford and Thomas Adam made the quick trip north to Washington, DC to compete in the Run for the Parks 10k. The course was out and back and very flat. The weather was perfect temperature-wise, but a stiff headwind on the way back made for a difficult second half of the race.
Ford stuck with two other women for the first half of the race, then made her move mile four to pull away from both of them. Ford ended up breaking the tape in a time of 35:58, 30+ seconds ahead of the second woman. This was Ford’s last tune up race before her peak race, the Richmond half marathon, in two weeks.
Adam also was in a pack of three at the halfway point, but had to battle one of the guys all of the way to the finish before just pulling ahead on the final straight. Adam finished 8th in a time of 31:58. Results can be found below.
