5k dash


17:23 at this morning’s Daisy Dash 5K. Time was disappointing, but it was very humid from overnight storms. I thought I could run 16:50s, but my legs had no go in them. Maybe partly due to yesterday’s equally hot 10 miles I paced with CES.

More surprisingly I finished in 6th place. This race is always a battle with the local high school XC team, but a larger than normal amount of current and alumni runners came out to play.

On the positive side, both boys ran the 5K this year. Younger (11) for the first time and went 25:45. He’d never run more than two miles, so this was a great debut. Sounds like he wants to do XC at the middle school this fall.
