Clermont 12k on Lake Minneola, Race Recap

In order to get a proof of time for the Tower of Terror 10-miler, we needed to run a 10k or longer distance, and when we found the Mineola 12K, we knew it was the right one for us. My parents live not too far from Clermont, so we had someone to watch our daughter and a place to stay!

Here is a breif recap of our experience at the Minneola 12k.

The course was beautiful, we started in the park and ran completely around the lake – which was nice because at times you could feel the cool breeze.
Miles 1-2 I held up a 4 min run / 1 min walk routine. 
Mile 3 – I started to feel really dehydrated, so I switched to a  3 min run / 1 min walk 
Mile 4 – choked down some GU, made me more nauseated. 1 min run / 1 min walk 
Mile 5-end – finally feeling better!! 2 min run / 1 min walk 
I genuinely felt great! I was super nervous with only 1 hour of sleep the night before and I was also feeling nauseated (nerves always get me) – but, it was a great race! 
I’m proud to turn in this pace for my upcoming Run Disney events!!
