This was my second race of the day. I'd bonked at the Run For Mercy 5K while going for sub-19, but I'd already paid for this 5 miler, so I ran it too. I thought doubling would be good training for the Ragnar Relay next weekend.
I couldn't go as fast as I wanted, but I was able to hold a fast and slightly uncomfortable pace for the whole race. A lot of people passed me early on, and I spent the rest of the race picking them off. I probably passed a dozen people in the last 3 miles.
Overall, it was a confidence builder before Ragnar. And it turned out to be a PR too, which was unexpected.
