I ran the Murray 5K with 7 other people from our WBR team. We all wore our Slacker shirts which made it easy to spot each other. I was hoping to do the race in 18:30 but I didn't quit pull it out. I haven't been doing enough speed work to get myself mentally prepared for 3 miles of pain or I just don't care as much about pushing as I did in my younger age.
The race was nice. It had an out and back part and then ran around the park to the finish line. Mile one was a little up hill and I hit it in 6:00. Mile two came back down the hill but finished with a little hill which I got in 5:57. Mile 3 was about even in total elevation with a few small rolling hills which I ran in 6:06. I pushed the last 0.12 miles in 5:00 average. I liked the simple course but I need to do more training for a 5K if I want to do get my time down.
Taunia got a 26:45 along with Abbi. Matt got a 21:01, Sue got a PR of about a minute with a 25:13 and her husband John beat her by about 45 seconds. This was April's first race ever and she was only about 5-10 seconds behind Taunia and Abbi. Julie got a PR of almost 2 minutes with a 31:17
