2015-09-20 - Ashburn 5k with Mary

~6.2 miles @ ~15.5 min/mi

"Don't tell me how much time I have left!" Mary insists, in an effort to preempt any temptation to slow down. Today's goal is a 5k in under 40 minutes. A cool front has just come through, making the late morning air relatively comfy in spite of a bright sun. We walk ~1.9 miles to the crest of a hill and blast off from there: mile splits are roughly 11 + 13 + 13 plus a final fraction, for a total of ~38.5 minutes. Good job, Mary! I confess to adding ~1% to the distance, in case of GPS error. Tykes on bikes wobble by us and cute dogs tug at leashes.
