Event warmup:

3.5m warmup, jogged most of the course
  • 17m 23s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 05m 35s  min/mile

pace felt quick at the very beginning but disappointed with the sluggish 5:25 first mile split. other splits were in the low 5:30's so i knew i wouldnt fade at all, but just couldn't get the legs going. felt like a hard/comfortable effort. didn't have that quad or lung burn so that's good for the pace, so i just need to work on getting some speed back.

first come-from-behind win, was 4th at mile 1 and 3rd at mile 2. caught the leader with 3/4 of a mile to go, ran together for a bit then put on a surge to see if he had anything left. last 1/2 mile ran solo as second place fell back a bit. was a good and somewhat surprising win, got a bit lucky the other guys burned themselves out early on.
