Race: CSU Homecoming 5k (3.11 Miles) 00:17:56, Place overall: 32, Place in age division: 18

Race looked like it would be competitive on paper and it was, the entire CSU XC team ran, which basically sealed the top 20 spots--always nice to have a fast, competitive race though. My goal going into this one was to break 18 since i've not done so at altitude yet. ran 17:56, good for 32nd place, felt pretty good though, a calm pace, finished harder than usual at the end, so it was nice to get some turnover in the legs today. Pretty happy overall. great race, great course, perfect weather, nice fall scenery

local 5k tonight in Centennial, CO, about 5400 feet. was sluggish the whole race and lungs were on fire cuz of the cold and the dry air. my watch had splits at 5:40, 6:10, 6:07, but I'm not sure exactly what these splits were. decent speed work today all things considered. One plus was that my mileage was higher this week, no cut for the race, so that really showed. cooled down total 8.5
