Race Report by Statesboro Pacer, Micah Ward


3/4/06, Geico 12K, in Macon, GA


Catherine and I ran the Gieco 12K in Macon, Saturday March 4th. Believe it or not I got her up early enough to drive up that morning and still make the 9:00 a.m. start. This was a good race with a mostly flat course and one good hill. 12K is an odd distance so this was the first one for both of us and thus a PR! Catherine ran it in 1:13:19 and I ran 1:09:40 for a 9:24 pace. That pace is actually faster than any 10K pace I have run in the last 5 years. So I was pretty proud of that effort. We saw Jim and Joyce Hite from Millen as Jim ran the 5K and Joyce the 12K. They were both happy with their races and invited all the Pacers up to Millen for the Super Eagle Day 5K on March 11.
