Kath and I both placed second in our age groups, which was nice. Nothing to get too excited about though: very few of the real fast age group runners show up for this race because it is just one week after the Houston Marathon. Hey, you take your opportunities when they present themselves, right?
I clocked a 21 minute something for the 5K but unfortunately that was not a true reflection of my pace which was 7.45 minutes/mile. The course was short by a lot: 2.8 miles instead of 3.1. Must have had a real amateur race director. When you put up a race, job # 1 is to get the distance right.
I took a short time-out from 100 Days of Weight Loss; not that I really wanted to but pressure of work was just too overwhelming this last week. Will pick it up again from tomorrow.
