Drove up to Fort Collins today to run a 5k. It was really windy at the start, not what was predicted, but what can you do. Went out behind the leader for the first 400 then he kept going and I was on my own, kept thinking I was going to catch him but I never quite could - really noticed my inability to drop into another gear - just settled in and stayed at that pace - albeit a good pace. I think all the marathon training has sapped some of my speed, but thats okay. splits were 5:38, 5:40, 5:38, then 47 seconds for the loose change, which doesn't make a lot of sense because I was still holding the pace - but my watch came in a little long - so I must have either run  imperfect tangents (lots of sharp turns) or the coruse was a tad long - either way, 3.15 in 17:43, they had me officially at 17:43 as well, so the time was the same. Not the fastest 5k, but amazingly consistent splits, definitely a win. long cooldown of 7 miles
