This week has just been crazy and I sincerely meant to write a post leading up to today’s 5k but sometimes, even with the best of intentions, it is hard to sneak a blog post it.
While I would have loved to share all of my pre-race thoughts, strategy, and jitters with you, I will be more than happy to give you an in-depth post-mortem in a future recap post.
While you wait ever so patiently for a full race recap, I will share some of the basics of today’s excitement! I am still waiting on official results to be posted online but here are some of the exciting basic details:
The 2013 St. Patty’s Day Dash & Bash – Apopka, FL (*updated*)
Time: PR 23:28
or 23:29 (based on clock time at finish – still waiting on official results online) confirmed in official results
Gender Place: 4th
(based on announcer) confirmed in official results
Overall Place: 23rd
Award: 2nd in 25-29 age group (complete with a fancy pants Beef ‘O Brady’s Gift Certificate as a prize)
I have been a little nervous to jump into the 5k race distance but this was a great comeback race. Based on how I felt and my splits/results, I think I have gained a great deal of fitness since my last race and look forward to my next effort. Plus, I ran a much smarter race and focused on strategy rather than just running my legs off. It felt great!
more to come…
