Went out hot trying to set a pace that would put me on track for a 5K PR. I don't know if the humidity got to me, or it was just old age, but I just couldn't maintain it. By the time I hit the slight inclines on the return I knew I was cooked and just tried run it in. I felt like my fitness was pretty good after having just run the Summerfest HM 2 weeks ago, but I just didn't have it today.
What would you do differently?:

More speedwork leading up to this race. All I've done really is LSD. Still, I don't know if it would have made a difference. I'm probably 5 pounds heavier than last year, so that may have made the difference right there.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

My fat ass and a heart that can only pump so fast.

Event comments:

We'll try again next year. Hopefully I haven't hit the downslope yet for performance. I gave it all I had but it just wasn't enough to come close to my 21:34 PR for this race.
