Same course as Shelby Bottoms Boogie 5K, which I ran on 10/2. I tried for sub-19 today, but I couldn't get it. The first mile went ok, but then I got slower and slower. Too cold weather has a negative effect on me. I wore shorts and a t-shirt, but never felt comfortable.
My nose ran like crazy during the race, and I'd woken up coughing a lot during the night. After the race, I hacked up some yellow gunk from my throat. Sigh. During mile 3, I tried to push it some to get back in the race, but my diaphragm started to cramp up, and then I started coughing a lot. So this wasn't my week.
