good CASA 5K, Cumming GA 3.1 mi 00:26 08:28 pace

Drizzly, foggy morning in the 40s – almost perfect running weather except that my shoes were already wet from the puddles left by the earlier rain, but no matter. Despite the weather, a good crowd showed up for this 5K, which was an out and back on closed roads with rolling hills.

I ran the flat and downhill first mile in just under 8 minutes, but I didn’t feel like I was going too fast. I did slow down on the uphill parts of the rolling hills, which weren’t steep but they were long. I had plenty of company the whole way and tried to catch 4 people who were just ahead of me at the finish – I closed the gap but couldn’t quite catch that group, but I did hold off the two runners who were trying to catch me.

I finished 13th overall out of about 200 runners and was happy with that. Finish time was 26:17 and that was enough for 1st Senior Masters.
