Slower course this year since the first mile was uphill but happy with the PR result! I did not take splits during the race and just raced on effort and against others. The first mile was apparently in 5:20 before I got rolling down the pike. Felt strong at the end but not enough to catch Flynn--whose back I stared at for the majority of the race. Unfortunately I was out of the money spots as several very fast people showed up. Had a lot of fun and looking forward to a 10 mile PR next week.

It was sweet to run fast toward the end and I believe I was able to do so because I simply focused on my form, relaxing my stride and my face and going after the guy ahead of me. Sure with the new course it was 10 seconds slower than the pace I was on at mile 5 back in 2016 when I had to stop and walk but this was a well executed race from me and I feel I still have some tricks up my sleeve on these aging legs. Add to that it makes my PR more "legit" in the sense that it is a fairer course that is not technically "aided" by being straight down hill the whole way.

Hoping to run a 10mile PR next week at Broad Street followed by a down week then a quick track season with mile and 5K PRs this July. Happy to see some positive experiences out on the roads for a change.

PM: 1 hr. pool run + lots of foam rolling

Congrats on the PR! Looks like the first time under 32:00 and about a 15-18? second PR.
