Race: Christian Mission Turkey Trot (3.1 Miles) 00:20:37, Place overall: 14, Place in age division: 1

Warmed up 2 miles for the race. Haven't been in race mode for a long time, so no strong expectation.

Mile 1- 6:06 (A little fast, yet very flat and easy)

Mile 2- 6:36 (Kept almost the entire mile under 6:30 pace until hitting a steep hill on final 1/4)

Mile 3- + 7min (2 steep hills the completely took the life out of my legs...thought I had a sub-20 in me until hitting the 2nd hill, kind of lost it mentally, so probably should have finished 15-20 seconds faster).

Finishing time- 20:37
