Winter Series III Short Series

5 Miles 32:02 6:23 average per mile
7th Overall 1st Age 40-44
10:00 am) teens, snowing and windy
Didn't really want to race today as the conditions were far from
ideal. I had a good race and was happy with my last 2 miles
especially. The course was an out and back. The 2.5 miles out had
a tailwind and a headwind coming back. I was in 9th or 10 at the
turnaround. I was just behind 2 other runners. I drafted them for
a few minutes then decided it was time to push a bit harder so
made a pass. Glad I did the race today even if it was brutal. My
hands were frozen for a long time afterwards. Hope the weather
warms up soon!
