Agoura Hills, California
United States
Great Race of Agoura Hills
60F / 16C
Total Time = 20m 32s
Overall Rank = 28/1339
Age Group = M 55-59
Age Group Rank = 1/47
Pre-race routine:

Second leg of "15K Challenge," following 10K by 50 minutes.
Event warmup:

After 10K finish, I hydrated, jogged up hill to the 5K starting area, used the portapotty, lined up at the front for my second race of the day.
  • 20m 32s
  • 5 kms
  • 04m 07s  min/km

Felt good enough after the 10K that I thought I had a shot at sub-20 on a downhill course. Too slow in mile 2 to pull that off, however.

Did manage to win my age group in both races, though.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing...I went hard in both races and held up well.
Post race
Warm down:

Short jog through expo area.

Found results online: Top 30 overall and 1st in AG in both races. 2nd overall of 55 finishers in the 15K Challenge...only person ahead of me is 24 years old. He and I were only finishers to average sub-7:00/mile for the full 15K.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Just that the 5K was my second race of the day. First time I've ever attempted that.

Event comments:

The Great Race of Agoura Hills is a multi-race event with two half marathons (one was cancelled due to flash flood damage on the trail course), 10K, 5K, two family 1 mile runs. Big expo, pancake breakfast, challenging courses. Top drawer event.
