Good race for me today despite the fact that EVERY masters runner in Utah beat me. Here is a list of the over 40 runners who finished ahead of me...
Dennis S, Sasha, Steve Anderson, Walter, Taha, Steve Ashbaker, Bill Cobler and maybe more.
But I'm still happy with the way I raced. My splits were consistent right at about 5:45/mile the whole way and I'm usually happy when I break 18 minutes for a 5k on a legit course.
Here's my history with this race...
2005 - 18:54
2006 - 18:13 (won masters)
2007 - 18:27
2009 - 18:03 (won masters)
2010 - 17:51 (won masters)
2012 - 17:27 (won masters)
2013 - 18:22
2014 - 17:54
PM: One hour if intense trampolining plus a core workout.
