Total Distance

Very fast and competitive race with Olympic trials qualifiers, pro runners, and Ethiopians in the field. Wasn't sure what type of shape I was in so went out "easy." I did not take splits and went by feel. It was only after using Strava where I noticed I slowed down in mile 3 and 4 which probably cost me.

splits: 5:13,5:11,5:16,5:17,5:01. Obviosuly I had a lot if I ran a 5:01last mile. Just a little heavy and out of shape but it was fun for sure.

Was running by myself from a mile in. It was fun but man I'm not in the best of shape. I've split a faster 5 miles during a 10 mile race! My workouts have been super light coming off of the marathon so it makes sense I guess. One of the things I hate about running where I am at is that the elites are way ahead but nearly all of the field is behind. So in a race like this I end up running alone. I hope to hit the local elites by next spring, after I get in come consistent training.
