3 easy miles this morning, did the Pah Tempe Loop. My legs were feeling pretty tired this morning. Thinking about doing the 5K tonight. Where and what time are people meeting?
Did the Chelsi's Run 5K tonight. There was a pretty good turnout and fun to run a race at 10:00 pm even if it is still 100 degrees outside. I did a 2.5 mile warm-up then met up with most of the running club guys.
1-5:39 Logan, Dave, and Clyde were out in the front from the start. I ran the first .5 with James, then he gapped me pretty good. The start was fun. Mike and Bill took off like gangbusters, but they couldn't keep up with the 9 year old girl that smoked the entire field for the first 400m.
2-5:53 Felt ok on the second mile running in 5th pace, but then Kimzey (sp?) passed me, so I was in 6th. I could hear the three Pine View High School kids behind me saying "Hey let's go catch that guy in the white singlet" I'm pretty sure they were actually thinking "let's catch that fat guy in the white singlet"
3-6:03 The heat starting to get to me, plus the fact I'm running a 5K and I'm out of shape. I'm working hard but not closing any on 5th place, but still holding off the other two high school kids.
Overall time was 17:50 (5:52 average)
I felt pretty good with this race considering the heat and the fact it was a pretty honest course, not much downhill or uphill, pretty flat and fair. Looking forward to supporting again next year.
Did 1.5 mile cool-down
