A beautiful night for a run, was hoping for a beautiful run and instead got this pile of horse apples.  Cut an already short run shorter when I saw where it was going. Oh well, they can't all be winners.

Pr by 46 seconds.

So I have been thinking that it might be time to PR my 5k time.  Right now I have lots of run fitness and pretty fresh legs before I get back into heavy training for Disney.  So I looked at what races were on the schedule and saw the Fall Classic.  What I didn't initial realize is that it was a hilly and challenging course. However I set out to PR and knew I would feel better about it because I would earn it.  My goals for today were 1. to PR, 2. to race a sub 7 pace, 3. to win my age group.  I got all three! Won my age group and finished 12th (out of total of 118) overall.  Started out just a bit behind lead group of about 15.  Pretty much held that spot until final mile, passed a couple of guys and passed second place woman with about 1/2 mile to go.  In the last quarter mile tried to catch two guys in front of me, caught one (finished ahead by 2 sec) but couldn't quite catch the second one (he beat me by 2 seconds).  No splits but pace was pretty even throughout.  Very rewarding and nice to PR in a marathon and 5k (especially this course) in same month.

on the deck looking up and the leaves on the trees.

Plan was to do hilly 10 mile route.  Used to do this route  a lot in earlier days, but got frightened of it when my IT band blew up on it. Challenging route with plenty of beefy hills.  Had no Garmin so I had to guess on distance and turned around where I thought 5 mile mark was.  When I got home I adjusted distance because thought this was more in line with actual pace.  Doesn't really matter though because this was about getting out on a beautiful fall day, working hard and enjoying the spectacular views of the changing colors on the rolling hills...oh, and as always, negative splitting. :)
