YMCA Turkey Trok 5k

2.85 Miles 17:18 6:04 average per mile (18:48 for 5k)
30th overall & 5th in age (35-39)
9:00 am) Teens Sunny & Cold
Yes that distance is correct course was short. Very frustrating
when you pay to run a 5k and they can't get the distance right.
I ran okay and better than my first 5k here a month ago or so
when I ran 20:11. Still can't seem to run fast here. I'm getting
stronger at longer runs but these short ones are hard! I know
what I need to do to get faster but have not committed to it yet
that would be track work 400's & 800's. I like trail running too
much to spend a lot of time at the track. When it gets closer to
my next goal race May 2011 I will be doing track on a regular
basis.

Thanks GZ! Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving as well. Mine was okay but not as good as past ones. All my family is in Wisconsin and Illinois. I miss them very much!
