good Gaslight Festival 5k 3.11 mi 00:25 08:01 pace

Record crowd this year, almost 800 runners! Course runs in my neighborhood, so the roads are familiar. Ran it in 2010 in 30:09, in 2011 27:26, and this year I managed 25:00 flat...(not sure if I can continue this pattern and pull off another 2:30 minute drop next year, ha!) Weather was a little warm in the low 80's, but felt great. A little hesitant going into this race...ham string and ITB have been giving me grief, HS kept threatening to cramp all day, but finally said to heck with it, if it seized up, I'd walk. Wish I'd split my miles, certain my first mile was in the 6's, however, by the last 3/4 mile, I was tasting dinner, so I pulled back on the hills and missed my 24(the clock clicked over right as I crossed the line...gahhh), but that's ok, I was just happy with a new Gaslight PR, wasn't expecting an A/G award, but I was tickled with 2nd place. Lil man ran with his XC team. Some of these kids are lightening fast. The only one that came in ahead of him tonight is his age (4th grade) and state ranked (she hit an impressive 21!) He came in at 23:10 (7:27 pace). I want to grow up and be my 9 year old! Fun race. Home town Pokey 5k in 2.5 weeks! Hopefully we'll both pull another PR with the cooler morning!
