Webster City Firecracker 5k today. Only 3 and a half weeks of training, so just wanted to get out and get a good run in. Goal was sub-19. Really hot and humid this morning, but thats to be expected on the 4th. 6:12 first mile, 6:12 second, 6:24 final 1.1, Didnt have my watch, so had to ask my fellow runners for splits. 18:49 final, 4th place overall, surprised myself with my level of fitness and my ability to maintain a somewhat decent pace. My younger brother beat me for the first time ever, I was proud of him, he ran 18:38 and got 2nd (and got recruited by a college coach mid-run). He is getting better and its exciting to watch!

Was going to get up and race a 5k this  morning on my birthday but decided to sleep in instead. For my afternoon run, decided to go hard for 5k to see where I am. Did a 5k in 18:28, hit 6:04, 5:57, 5:55 then :32. good effort for a warm afternoon at altitude. Nice to get a feel for where I am. Here's to my 32nd year of running!
