Albany, New York
United States
60F / 16C
Total Time = 19m 32s
Overall Rank = 36/661
Age Group = M30-39
Age Group Rank = 8/90
Event warmup:

Short jog, stomach was feeling a bit iffy today.
  • 19m 32s
  • 5 kms
  • 03m 55s  min/km

Started out with Clay, which was a little too fast for the first mile probably. Backed off and left Steve behind. Somewhere after mile 2 wasn't feeling great, and Steve caught back up. I told him he might have me today, and let him go. I thought we were getting close to the finish so I kicked it to see if I could pass him back. Well, I passed him, but we were not close to the finish like I thought. Held on for a sub-20 at least.

The really cool thing about this race, was that we placed 3rd as a team and actually won some cash! Go Team Loco runner's division!
What would you do differently?:

Maybe figure out how much is left before I kick.
