This is the first race I have ran since 2017. I have gained quite a bit of weight and I have also struggled with an ankle injury for the past 3 years. I was happy today to just finish. My goal was to break 30 minutes, so I was pleased with my time and effort. I did a 1 warm-up with Jarren before the race.
1- 8:06 I started faster than was planned
3- 9:00 I had to stop and walk a few times.
26:30 (8:31 avg)
Anyway overall I was happy, I got a nice award for placing second in my age group. Jarren did pretty good for not being in running shape 6th overall and 1st in his age group 19:42.
2 mile walk cool-down.
