St Malachi 5-Miler

Great running weather for a change: 40s with a slight breeze.

I warmed up by doing the 2-miler in about 13:30.

The Five? I finished in 31:52. Very good going, and my best 5-miler in a while. Very consistent 6:22 pace. But this made up my mind: I'm not in outstanding enough shape to take on the Toledo Marathon in a great time, so I'll bag that one and I'll be more patient.

Here are the splits: 6:22, 6:26, 6:21, 6:20, 6:21. Good consistency, considering the hills, including that last one.

I may have gotten an award, but didn't stick around to find out.

Great Race! Glad to hear other people reporting on the 5 mile race. Keep up the good work.

Coming Up Short

I needed 24. Isn't it funny how we need mileage like this? Anyway, I only got 22. I will choose to blame this one on today's running...
