Local 5k today here in nearby Brighton. Wanted just to get a good speed day in and I think I got that. Weather was super cold this morning, mid-20s and snow still on the ground from yesterday, but once the sun came out it warmed up a little, decided to go with a long-sleeve shirt instead of singlet and arm warmers, it was just too cold when running into the wind still. warmed up for 2.3 miles probably 3 in total with strides and tempo bursts, splits of the race were 5:41, 5:50, 5:39, and :49 (for the last ".1" The course was probably about 10-12 seconds long. I ran pretty good tangents, and was still about 3.17 on the watch, so maybe just a touch long. Chip time was 17:57, which is 5:46 pace, my watch had me at the same time but for 3.17 which is 5:41 pace, I passed a ton of people from the half mile point to the first mile, going from the mass of quick starters into 5th, then I ran down two more in the second mile and was all alone for the last mile for a 3rd place overall finish. Overall, even though I was obviously hoping for a little faster, I felt good and was really happy with how well I ran the last mile of the race - 4.4 total cool down for 10.5 on the day
