Comments:

My strategy was to pace off my training and racing buddy Tim, and that worked well. I kept within a few feet to the finish. He won his AG, and I came in 4th. My AG was stacked! It was a very fun race.

Warm down:

Just a quick snack, and socializing with a bunch of friends.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

It was a pb - not much would have made me faster, except perhaps an easier long run last week. I took it easy this week, and felt good during the race.

First, with your upcoming 5K, I strongly advise you to check out the “Couch to 5K” training schedule. This training schedule is a GREAT way to get back into running safely and wisely.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had weight issues. I remember standing on the scale as a child weighing 60 pounds and feeling fat. My family dealt with stress by eating.
