Pre-race routine:

perpet for breakfast.. then the "race" to the airport. Just made it in time.
  • 26m 2s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 08m 24s  min/mile

planned for an 8 pace and went out a little faster of course.. first half I was feeling great and actually avg around 7:50 or so.. I noticed a wind at my back but didn't think too much of it.. then at the turn around, it was like hitting a brick wall of wind! wow, everyone was slower. I drafted as much as I could but it was hard to stay at an 8 pace.. Managed to finish in the low 8's which I was pretty happy about considering haven't don't much training yet.. but definietly getting back into the swing this year.
What would you do differently?:

more training Jan to April like last year.. ran a 7:16 pace last year. so training makes a big difference of course

Warm down:

waited at the finish for Kerry to finish.. her first race in over a year..

Event comments:

Really cool course.. You actually run a good portion of the race on the actual runway. It's super flat obviously, and a well organized race. Started a little late this year - I think b/c they had to enter all the race day registrations into the computer before the start. Fun 5k for the entire family - strollers and walkers allowed.
