I started out fast- at 8 minutes per mile for the first and then the next two at 840 per. Not fast at all for most people, but for my slow bones a fast start and faster than any 5k I have done in many years. My legs started to tire and I didn’t want to blow them out so I eased off a little- some on purpose and then some but feeling and finished in 1:07:46 at 9:06 per mile. It wasn’t a bad run- faster than anything I had done for 7.5 miles so far but I was a little disappointed. My friend Dean ran as well, and finished well at 1:10.
Following the race I was surprisingly sore and achy- a final week of tapering before the big day.
