2005-06-04 - 5k-ish Race

~3 miles @ ~8.1 min/mi

A 5 km race (note: course not certified) at my office, won by some youngster in a bit over 16 minutes ... for me it was slightly slower than my 8 min/mi goal, but ~45 seconds behind last year's result ... excuses: a year older; a little heavier; absence of whip-cracking coach to push me ... followed a pretty lady most of the way (which probably explains why I wasn't slower!) ... first half 11:58, second half 12:32 ... optimal weather, cool and cloudy ...
