Pre-race routine:

Get ready at home and drive to race course, about 10 minutes away. Look around for Karen and Eric and find another couple of people I know. Do a little bit of walking.
Event warmup:

Not much - just walking a bit.
  • 47m
  • 3.11 miles
  • 15m 07s  min/mile

This was a fun run and I did better than the last 5k I did in November by about 45 seconds. So, the time was good for me, and it felt good although, of course, I feel like I could have pushed harder and done a little better overall.

One of these days I'd really like to be able to be faster than the racewalkers. It's kind of demoralizing when someone is walking faster than you're running.

Generally though I felt very good about this race - it was good for me.

Warm down:

Walked around to cool down and waited for Karen and Eric. I met one of my goals which was to finish the 5k before Eric finished the 10k. I was happy about that.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I need to LOSE WEIGHT!

Event comments:

A nice little race with not a lot of people.
