Is a 6 hour 10 minute century (100mi) time good?

I am 17 and 115lbs and I am 5’3”. So this weekend I decided to go out for a 100 mile bike ride on a paved bike trail. It had other cyclists and it went from rural to almost downtown DC so it had a lot of spots where I had to slow down and go around people but it was pretty flat. I completed it in 6 hours and 10 minutes (moving time). It was solo and I ate while I rode and only stopped briefly.

I am just getting into cycling and wanna do distance 60-100 mile races. I ride the trek domane. Any training tips or thoughts on this?

By the end I wasn’t dead and I could have probably gone harder but it is what it is. First 60mi I averaged 16.25 and last 40 I averaged 14.75mph
