This morning was the Saratoga 5k "fun" run. This is the fourth running of this race and this was also my fourth time running it. It was my first 5k 3 years ago. This is by far the hardest course I have ever run, and everyone I talk to agrees..... it is nothing but hills, and some big ones at that.

I went out too fast knowing what I had in store. The second mile always seems to be the hardest for me and it shows in the splits. I even took a couple walking steps on a couple of the hills which irritates me since I have not done that since the first time I ran this race 3 years ago, 45 lbs heavier.

I finished strong, but kinda disappointed I didn't even drop into the 23's where I really wanted to be. I guess I need to get more serious about speed work and dropping a few lbs.
