First race of the year in the books. The hilly course is definitely not my element. I didn't PR, but it was a respectable showing. 8K in 36:46, about minute slower than my time two
years ago and compared with my last 5 miler, it was not me at my running peak. Finished 179th out of 1842... Not bad, I guess.
Still, I'm happy to get it in. It showed me that yes, I need more speed work, and yes, I need to build my mileage, and yes, I could stand to lose some pounds... But hey, that's running life, huh? Tomorrow, I plan to get back into it with a long run.
