The weather was chilly and the sun just rose before the gun went off. As i was standing there waiting to start, I kindof ran through the idea that what if I just did the 5K... i was cold and was my mind was wandering. With the half, 10K and 5K all starting at the same time, they managed traffic well. The lakepath was pretty empty with the colder temps coming in.
Crossed the finish line feeling good but also could tell i pushed myself at the end. Official time was 1:02:01 with a 10:00 min (exactly) mile average. A 3 minute PR which I know I could improve on. Afterwards, they served Eggs and Biscuits. (Didn't touch the gravy but used them to ensure my salt packets didn't fly awaybut the eggs were yummy.) Walked back to my car, changed shirts and got back before my family was even awake. Not bad for a quick jaunt along the lake.
