Saturday, August 10th

Am: 8mi*/51min - Yankee Candle 5K. 16:16(5:14) 1st place. This is a fast flat course and a real good indicator of where my speed and fitness are at right now. I was thinking I had a shot to break 16. It didn't happen. I went out too fast 4:54 and struggled the last mile. I ran 15:39 and 15:35 in 2011 and 2012. Oh well. It was my first true 5K of the whole year. I need to race more 5K's. They're a great workout that don't leave me beat up, and I can still do a long run the next day. Pm: 8mi/51min in Pisgah with Griffin. Gorgeous weather and my body feels good. I joked with Boj that I was doing a punishment double for a bad race. I'm glad I got out there for a second run today.
