Event warmup:

Register for the race and talked with a few friends. I did jog maybe a few hundred yards or so.
  • 23m
  • 3.1 miles
  • 07m 25s  min/mile

I started out trying to be conservative, but did not, my first mile was 7:13ish. Felt pretty good (for a 5K) the whole race. I still dont know how to run a 5K...Go out fast or sae it for the last mile. Around mile 2 a guy passsed me and I got back up to him and we went back and forth a couple of time and then in the last 1/4 I was able to pull away. I came around the corner to the finish and saw the 22:?? and tried for the 22 but missed it.
What would you do differently?:

Figure out what works for me start fast or not.

Warm down:

Gatorade, brownies and bagel. I then sat around waiting on awards and door prizes. I won muy fist door prize in all the races I have been to. A haircut, a womans haircut.

What limited your ability to perform faster:
