Urbana Sundae 5K. Just a little gauge to see where I am at. Pretty disappointed that I was the only person between the ages of 18 and 32 in this race. I thought there might be someone to run with for a little bit at least, but alas there was not. I was not sure about splits or anything like that. Took it out moderately and settled in. Tried to push, but I was not full boar. The volunteers just kind of looked at me as I ran by without saying anything. All of the twists and turns confused me as to how much was left in the race. I probably slowed down 1.5-2.5, but felt like I picked it up pretty well the last half mile and had a good close.
I felt tired like I had had a good workout after the race, but within a couple minutes I felt fine. I would be interested to know what i would have ran with competition - maybe closer to 17? I felt like there was a lot left in the tank. Next week will be a better indicator at Parkside. Happy to run and compete again and winning always feels good, even if its by 5 minutes.
