HELLO NEW 5K PR!!! This morning I ran the Greenlawn Fire Department, Engine Company, Halloween 5K and was really pleased with not only the race, the organizers, and the weather (upper 50s, sunny but shaded by lots of trees on the course), but my 25:06 finish (8:05 pace). I beat my last 5K, which was 3 weeks ago, by 20 seconds.
My last three 5K races show a steady improvement:
Commack 5K, Aug. 12 – Time 26:39 / Pace: 8:34
Elwood 5K, Oct. 1 – Time 25:26 / Pace 8:12
Greenlawn 5K, Oct. 21 – Time 25:06 / Pace: 8:05
