New 5K PR. I'm embarking on a plan this year to get faster by running fewer long-distance races and increasing my speed on a series of short-distance races. This was the first test race to see what I could do. The weather and course were ideal -- sunny, crisp, gentle breeze on a flat and mostly shaded course. I ate and drank exactly right before the race & had a good warmup run. Nik paced me on the course and was trying to get me under 11 min/miles for each mile. She was the perfect coach and kept pushing me to go strong when my natural wariness was telling me to slow down and take it easier. I cut 2 minutes off my previous PR and in retrospect felt like I could've pushed it a bit more. Either way, this was the fastest I've run yet. You're the best, honey! Official time: 33:24. My mom did great too -- she got a medal for coming in 2nd in her age group.
