I'm a SELLOUT! But got that EZ W
So yeah racing today surely wasn't my smartest move, but I had a free entry into the race after last year and picked up some good prizes without much trouble last year, so decided to go for it. Actually Achilles felt ok before, great during, and decent after. Maybe I have to do all my running at 5:40 pace! I didn't really know what to expect, but I figured 17:30 was reasonable. Thought I'd hang back for a while and leave it for the last mile, but as we got going I felt more comfortable just going to the front since lead pace was pretty slow. First mile felt super chill and was like "hey what was I worried about, sub 17 EZ" but wasn't able to keep that up. I let off the gas a bit for 2 and 3 but I doubt I was good for any better than 17:20. It was nice to get back out there and compete a little again, and picked up some fleet feet money, another entry, some gym membership, and 4 charleston battery BOX seats... not too shabby!
