All American 5k

I did this race back in 2013 and I remember it being hard, but I don't remember it being shitty. They call this the 'fastest 5k', and you think that's because it's downhill. Guess what? It's not all downhill. Why didn't I remember this from last time? I'm sure I mentioned it in my blog post. There are two long uphills that just kind of suck. The downhill portions are beautiful. My first mile was an 8:16 pace. Of course I couldn't hold on to it. I walked 4 different times to catch my breath. I finished in 27:59 with a 9:01 pace. My goal for this race was to come in under 28 minutes. Mission accomplished by 1 second! Woot! But...I'm getting slower. Ugh, need to work on speed a bit more.

Awesome finish photo.
