Winter Series Race #2 (4 Miles Short Series)

4 Miles 23:15 5:49 average per mile
10th Overall 1st Age (40-44)
10:00 am) 30 degrees
Very happy with the race today. Wasn't sure how the hammy
would hold up it was fine, it didn't slow me down at all. Race
started out fast. I wanted to run around 6:00 for the first
mile and ended up running 5:44. I was in 15th place at mile 1.
Mile 2 I slowed to my slowest mile 6:00. This was due to me
going out too fast. Mile 3 started to feel more comfortable
5:46. Last mile was 5:44 could have been a bit faster but
couldn't pass runner in front of me as all the 8 mile runners
were on there way out. I thought maybe I could break 23:00
today but I'm not complaining with my time. Mile 2 cost me
any chance of breaking 23:00. Maybe next year.

Awesome time Brad! 5:49 pace? In my dreams :) I guess I could base jump off the peak and hit that!!! Very happy for you that the leg is cooperating.
