I got in a little jog beforehand and I did not feel great, really struggled to get loosened up.
  • 00m
  • 3.11 miles
  •  min/mile

I really went into this run with no expectations except that I was doing a run.I left my Garmin and iPod at home and wanted to run it by feel only, hoping for somewhere around a 27 minute 5K. I started about 20 feet back form the front of the pack and took off weaving through people. I got into a comfortabel pace and just ran. I missed the one mile marker and did not look at my watch until I hit mile 2. My watch said 15:20, and I knew I was having a good day. This charged me up a bit and I just kept running strong to the finish.
What would you do differently?:

pushed it harder, gone for a PB

Warm down:

bathroom, drink and then hopped in the car so I could get to church with the family

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:

Love that I almost had a PB on this race and I wasnlt even trying for it, I was just running comfortably. This re-enforces that I am doing the right things for training and I can and will get faster.
