And the winner of the 5K is………

Not me. But, my 6-year old won the kids 1K fun run! He ran 1K in 4:48 and was the overall winner for the 1K. I am so proud of him. He has a competitive fire that is rare for a lot of kids. My 8 year old did not run today because he told me that he prefers to get trophies for team sports. (All the participants in the kids fun run got a medal).

As for the 5K, I ran a respectable (for me anyway) 31:28 which is 55 seconds slower than my PR, set last June. Not bad for just coming back to distances of 2 and 4 miles this past week or so. My friend Lisa, who is my coach, ran with me. I know it killed her to run that slow. Lisa was 12th in the world in the master’s division Olympic distance triathlon. So, this was REEEAAALLL slow for her. But she pushed me to run faster. Thanks Lisa!

Mile 1: 9:54
Mile 2: 10:35
Mile 3: 9:56
Total: 31:28

Avg. pace: 9:48.
