Average: 6:48 min/mile
Place: 8th woman, first in my age division
New Personal Record for 5K
A few notes:
– Amazingly, I ran my best 5K to date on a stomach full of sushi and after of a month of lackluster holiday running (I ran, but I ran neither hard nor far).
– I went out like a rocket and crossed the first mile marker in 6:28 – the other two miles were . . . um . . . not very rocket like.
– Sushi is delicious, but perhaps not an ideal pre-race dinner.
– Heat lamps in the finishing area = happy runners.
And to the guy in the french maid outfit: You rocked it and great costume!
P.S: I am sitting here writing this race report when I should be getting ready to go out for a long run. What is wrong with me?
