Legs a little sore from yesterday.  It's a shame you can't run hard every day without consequences.

Morning run, Temp, upper 50's

Nice to have another short sleeve morning.  Did 6 .15 mile strides.  The last .5 miles in 2:28 slightly aided.  Hard to believe my fastest half mile sprint is the pace the world-class marathoners run the entire marathon.  Wow are they moving!

After a though week at work putting in extra hours and working late Friday then going out to eat at 8:30pm with the family for burgers, fries, and icecream.  I'd planned on running a 14-15 easy miler Saturday morning.  But we came home and watched a movie eating candy, then my son Dallas came home and said I should run a 5k with him in the morning. I didn't even know there was a race.  I'm kinda making up my excuses.

Anyway the morning was cloudy with a temp of about 48' and some wind.  There were probably just a little over 100 people for the race.  I could tell at the starting line my real competition would be all the Bingham High JV cross country runners.  Luckily the Varsity have state next week so they couldn't make it.  I ran 4 easy miles before the race and was warmed up. 

The gun went off and the JV runners took of very fast.  Durning the 1st mile I passed a couple of the JV runners and got a 5:48 mile.  I was about 20 seconds behind the 1st pack of JV runners.  I though I had them right were I wanted them and that they would slow down the second mile and I'd catch up to them.  But instead I was falling a litte further behind.  My legs felt week and I just didn't have what I was expecting.  I did pass another JV runner.  My second mile was in 6:14.  Sad. 

I put everything I could into the last mile but it didn't feel good.  My son Dallas came in 3rd and continued to out pace me.  The race was short and the last .9 miles was in 5:16 or a 5:51 mile pace.  Dallas got about a 16:30.  The first time my Son has bet me.  I guess all the running this summer and fall really helped him out.  I did win the 30 and over age division and got a $30 gift certificate for I-Tunes.
