2006 Advance Packaging 5000m Results

11/197 Overall

I didn’t find out I was running this race until Tuesday evening of this week (I was going to be doing something else, but it fell through) so I was not mentally prepared for it. It was sortof by the seat of my pants. It was hard to get ‘up’ for this race because of that, and the fact that it started at 7pm (ugh!)

So I started and ran a great race in the end, even though I felt crappy and thought I wouldn’t break 19. Well, I did and it made me think I should be able to break that elusive 18 sooner rather than later. Woo Hoo!

It felt good. The weather was a little chilly, with a slight wind. A flat out and back that did not have any mile splits, so I did not know how fast I was running until the turn which I hit at 9:10.
My goals for this run were twofold, both of which I achieved. I broke 19:00, and I beat Dane, my running partner by 20 seconds.
Salacia did the kids sprint afterwards, winning her race, albeit short.
Even though my foot hurt most of the week, it gave me no problems during the race.
