Mokena 5K Dash. Entered this race on a whim this week because I knew I'd be around. Time is a little slow (slowest of the last 6 months), but I'm not too disappointed about it. A win wasn't going to happen today, the winner ran 16:01. Second was 16:20. I am a little more disappointed I didn't push hard for third place. The guy ran 17:20 which would have been really pushing it, but not untouchable for me.
The race got out pretty quick, I held back thinking the guys wouldnt run that fast. Through the mile in 5:45. At that point I was all alone in 4th, no one even close behind me and probably 10 seconds down of 3rd. The second mile I apparently ran faster (11:21 - 5:36), but I lost more distance on the guy. I suppose the third mile was probably pretty close to 6 minutes.
I'm pretty happy with the effort, all things considered, I ran consistent and felt strong, but I've been training pretty hard. I think if I had tried to feel fresh I could have competed for 3rd, but I gotta keep the focus up ahead and just keep accumulating miles. Happy to be under 18 as well.
