This was my my first 5k since Jan 2012. I wasn't sure what to expect from myself or the course so I just pushed the pace until it hurt and then backed off a little for the first mile. By then I was in 5th place and feeling ok about maintaining my 6:30ish pace for the duration. The course was pretty hilly and I managed to reel in 2 more guys just keeping it steady. 2nd place looked like a possibility on the uphills, but he kept pulling ahead on the flats. I'm going to have to work pretty hard to beat this time next week. This was a really fun morning and a great free race. I plan to be back for many more.
Pace: 6:33, 6:41, 6:26, 5:53
