Great Bay 5K — A Successful Run!

Woo Hoo, Yippee, Yea!  I had a great race this morning.  It was the last race in the Seacoast Race Series, a 5K and I had one of my best times of the year!  24:28 for a 7:53 pace.  I had set a goal to break an 8 minute pace in a 5K this year, and I did it — twice.  Today, I placed 6th out of  107 in my age group — well within my goal of top 10%.  Plus, as an added bonus, I ended up on the First Place mixed team for Coastal Athletic Association.  I never quite understand how they figure out these age graded results but I’ll take it!



I am very happy with my running this season.  I started in February at an 8:54 pace, and through a lot of running, some speed work and a bunch of races, I ended at a sub 8.  Pretty good I’d say.

Now I will hang up my racing shoes (except for a Thanksgiving morning Turkey Trot), and pick up again in the early Spring.
