Event comments:

Overall I felt good and strong. I think I could have pushed a bit harder but I am happy with the results. Originally I planned for a time of 32:30 or better and I beat it by almost a minute. Not bad for a "C" race. YEAH!

You averaged sub 6 min. miles for the last three and thought you could push faster?  I hope I get there some day.

Great race!
