Event warmup:

Light jogging--some with the kids, some solo

  • 06m 18s  min/mile

Legs had felt heavy on run last night and during my warm-up and I hadn't done much faster running recently. So wasn't sure what to expect. Went out 'comfortably hard' and felt pretty good though the first 2+. Definitely felt it in the last 3/4 mi, though. Knew there was a guy in my AG behind me, but was never sure just how close. He's run behind me in a couple other 5k's--passing me late in at least one of those. Was able to hold him off this time.
