Fair race today. 16:39 is one second slower than last years time for this race. Bummer. Splits were 5:11, 5:24, 5:28.
I tried to hang with Steve Ashbaker. He was easy to spot with a red cap. For most of the way he was running ten to fifteen seconds in front of me and I thought I might be able to close at the end. I just didn't feel any life in my legs the last mile.
I got beat by all the top masters. Steve Andereson ran 15:22 finishing only about ten seconds behind Dennis Simonaitis. He's really looking good and I think is about to emerge as a nationally ranked master.
Went out to breakfast after at the IHOP with Steve Anderson and his two girls. Abby and Andy love playing with the Anderson girls at races.Steve paid with the $50.00 he won at the race. Sweet!
pm run: 9.25 miles around the Highland High track in 1:05 (7:03 pace).
