Fort Worth, Texas
United States
65F / 18C
Total Time = 27m 3s
Overall Rank = /1400
Age Group = 35-40
Age Group Rank = 3/34
Event warmup:

I did try to do a short warm up including jogging, short sprints and lots of stretching
  • 27m 3s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 08m 42s  min/mile

I felt like I was working hard at the beginning and made myself slow down so I wouldn't run out of energy too soon. I was taking notice of people passing me and mentally telling myself I needed to keep up. I found a few people that I tried to pace myself with and just pushed as hard as I could without having to slow down. I was SHOCKED to see that I was third in my age group because it was a pretty big 5k, about 1400 people and I really thought there were way more people in my age group ahead of me. I was excited to get hardware!

Warm down:

Got some water, went back to the finish line to find my dad.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

That was a PR for me in a 5k race so I am pleased

Event comments:

I enjoyed the race and was pleased at the after race events. I was on the committee that helped get the restuarants on board that brought the food. I thought it turned out well and we had lots of food and there was music. I hope we can continue to expand the restaurant participation and neighborhood involvement in the future.

Wow! Congrats on the PR and you should be really proud to get HW in any race, but especially one of this size!
